Please tag ~/.mythtv/*cache using CACHEDIR.TAG

Description

Various backup utilities can automatically exclude cache directories if tagged via the "Cache Directory Tagging" standard (http://www.brynosaurus.com/cachedir/). Doing so requires creating a file CACHEDIR.TAG in each cache directory (~/.mythtv/*cache/), containing the contents "Signature: 8a477f597d28d172789f06886806bc55". Please consider implementing this standard by creating this file, so that backup software can automatically exclude the MythTV caches.

Feature request without patch. If you would like to come up with a patch to do this in the various spots where caches are created, please feel free to reopen when you attach it.
