Yeah... well, if I could find out how to use the thing, maybe I would. Firing up
the GUI gives me a screen filled with so much bling I need dark glasses...
Running it as a CLI, amongst a whole load of other verbage I get:

No matching FileType found or file doesn't exist: '--help'
Sheesh. Even (!) mythtv does better than that.
It does, in fairness, then print some possible options (all of which have ONE
preceding hyphen not two, don't you just love standards?), but I have no idea
what most of them mean.
There's NO DOCS. I'm not running a complex app like that on my files if I don't
have a clue what it's doing (and I have very little clue what I want it to do in
the first place). I don't want it to destroy my programs in the process of
No Docs. No help files. Nothing at SourceForge. A GUI laid out last century.
Don't you just love Open Source?
