Hmm, I'm pondering on the icon value, will anything be specified about those?
Are we trying to make some generic channel icon specification that can be
reused by other applications?
Maybe it's best left to the application or a higher level library?

So those would be located in /etc/dvb/presets by default?
Would libdvbcfg support managing those?
