Sorry about the lack of progress on your PR, all I can say is that the "wrong approach" view point is not held by the whole team. Also anyone raising a PR has to persistently and yet patiently and politely fight for it, no matter how unhelpful some team members may be. No one will notice it lurking and no one has individual responsibility to repond or give useful guidence. It would be nice if they did, but often this isn't the case. Is it a bad way to treat contributors, yes I think it is crap, but there simply aren't enough devs with sufficient knowledge, skills and spare time.

If I can motivate myself (working on Kodi is draining even with the "advantages" on being a team member) I am hoping to make the music equivalent (that is in v18) configurable via GUI settings in v19, maybe get this whole thing done for video too then too. Unfortunately I don't have much to do with video lib, art or scraping so don't feel that I can push the intermediate step for video now. 
 Appreciate the response. I'd say to the Team Kodi devs that they should probably think of a better way to implement user input. I've lurked around XBMC/Kodi for awhile and started getting into it heavily myself a bit ago and found far more snark than help which doesn't benefit anyone. After all don't we all just want one awesome amazing program that does incredible things? I can understand there's tons of real out there ideas but I've noticed lots of very common things that you'd think should be intergrated by now still being tricky to figure out if you don't devote a lot of time.

I am always thankful to the people here who offer their help, ideas and knowledge.
