[linux-dvb] Johannes' idea of simple zap (szap)

Hi list,

Some time ago Johannes told me about the initial idea behind szap: 
actually it was not meant to be dvb-s-only zapping but simple-zapping. 
dvbscan, for example, handles dvb-t/c/s and atsc tuning files, szap 
originally should have been extended to zap all other digital TV sources 
as well.

The szap prototype for the linux-dvb V4 API is implemented like this, too.

I'm now wondering if it worth the effort to port back the v4-szap or to 
put all the existing code of [tcsa]zap together again?

For example the pmt-output-switch (discussed in '[linux-dvb] 
szap-pmt.diff') would now need to be adapted to the other zap-programs for 
the sake of completeness.

Would this be a complete waste of time? ;)

best regards,
