It should be largely fine to use, with the sorts of caveats you've
already noted. The fact that this was still pending for openrc was
one of the reasons it is still masked.
The other issue is that my mythtv front-end died shortly after I got
it into the tree, and I've ended up moving off of mythtv. I don't
believe Cardoe is actively using it at the moment so it is in a bit of
limbo. However, it almost certainly works and tweaks to improve it
are certainly welcome. I'm sure cardoe would commit them but if not I
can try to help out with that. I just have no way to test anything at
the moment so I don't want to fiddle with it without testing feedback
from an active user.
