I'm not saying anything about the epg data as plain text vs sqlite thing, but 
would like to note that things are not always that black and white as the 
above seems to say.  In my opinion it does not make sense to reimplement 
everything that's required just in order to avoid dependencies (but other 
valid reasons for not using something that's already there might of course 
exist).
