I'm in two minds about this. In general, I agree, services should be turned 
off by default. However in this case, I can't see why mythbackend should ever 
been installed on a machine that isn't a backend. And there's no security 
specific things that need to be configured for the backend, so unless lots of 
people who think it shouldn't be, (or unless I'm breaking a packman rule I 
don't know of) I'll leave it as it is for now.

For some reason the libraries aren't being stripped. I'll have an upload 
tonight that should fix that.

This is on my radar to do, but there's no way I can test at all what I build. 
It will just be an automated script to do a checkout, build and upload.

Hopefully, I'll work on the plugins RPM tomorrow.

And thanks for the feedback. (Even if it does mean more work for me ;-) ) Keep 
it comming.
