configurable options for the xmltv grabbers
Looking at the code of tvheadend, it seems that the tv-grabbers are invoked without any option getting the xml-output to parse. It would be useful to let the users to configure additional options to pass. For example, it could allow the use of cache on a file or other specific options of the grabbers.

as a work around you can use tv_grab_file (http://code.google.com/p/tv-grab-file/) as the "grabber". This is a simple script that was specifically created to just load a valid xmltv file into tvheadend.
So the real grabber is invoked using cron or any other means and that generates a valid xmltv file. This file is place in a specific location (~/.xmltv/tv_grab_file.xmltv) and then tv_grab_file can pick up that file and hand it to tvheadend.
