Whoops, misread what Thorsten said, I think. I don't think he was advocating 
for mythtv into Extras, he was talking about putting it into another repo. 
What's wrong with the ATrpms version? Is it simply a matter of principle that 
people refuse to use the ATrpms package(s), since ATrpms can/does override 
core packages? A protectbase option seems like an idea solution for that, so 
why dismiss it w/"use a repo that doesn't override"...
