I suppose it's no longer important to honor this request, given that MediaBrowser is
moving to adopt movie.nfo Kodi/XBMC format instead of using movie.xml.

Unless you know something everyone else doesn't that is optional.  MBS still lets you
choose xml or nfo.

From an e-mail from Luke Pulverenti:

"I just wanted to let you all know that nfo is now our default metadata format. Xml
is still fully supported, but it's been a major goal of ours to be as compatible as
we possibly can with other applications. It is pure Xbmc style nfo so whatever routines
you use for them should work with us.

[...]

It would be great if your applications could likewise make nfo the default output format
for use with Media Browser, and have users specifically opt-in to xml if they want.
No rush obviously, just thought I'd bring up the idea. Thanks."

As they are transitioning to work with NFO directly as the default metadata format,
MCM will focus on supporting them in the movie.nfo format for MB3.

Older MB2 (and other movie.xml needs) will still remain available, but there doesn't
seem to be a reason to continue tweaking and duplicating metadata for MB3 if they prefer
it elsewhere.

Any change of getting the TV Genre tag update since MB3 overwrites MCM tag.  And MCM
displays everything as "Other".
