Thank you for the patch. We sincerely appreciate the effort that went into your patch. Unfortunately, the script is deprecated and will no longer be maintained.

The functionality provided by myth.find_orphans.pl will be incorporated into mythbackend (with interfaces in mythfrontend and MythWeb) to ensure it's kept up to date with future changes and to make accessing the functionality easier for users. The existing script has a lot of problems, in addition to the one mentioned here, because it hasn't been maintained across various changes to core MythTV, and its use is not recommended. Therefore, the script was removed from contrib.
