Not to put too fine a point on it, but it's never been a secret that
MythTV is a project by developers for developers. Things get added to
this app by and large because a particular developer wants the feature
bad enough to implement it. While occasionally developers see a feature
request and say "hey that's a great idea" more often than not, it's read
as "here's another person wanting me to spend hours working on something
I'll never use". Apparently none of the folks writing code for MythTV
has a large enough video collection for them to feel like modifying the
interface to deal with large file sets.
