ic. so vdr only writes to the file (and reads it once at startup) and
gets the EPG from internal data structures in ram on demand. so sharing
epg.data is not so good of an idea.

nevertheless, running vdr in a client-server environment is becoming
increasingly popular so this would be a nice feature. most notably if
you inject epg from different sources (internet).
