Comment(by Matthew Wire <devel at mrwire.co.uk>):

 Attached to this ticket rather than creating a new patch since as part of
 the mythui conversion it also implements the backend stop/start
 -Converts dialogs to mythui.[[BR]]
 -Adds option to stop/start backend and warns user if backend is currently
 -Creates a new class in setupdialog.h/cpp which handles the dialogs and
 menu instead of all being handled in main.[[BR]][[BR]]
 Note(1): auto stop/start backend functionality will only be available if
 MythbackendStartCommand and MythbackendStopCommand are defined in the
 database settings table.[[BR]]
 Note(2): There is currently a mythui bug which causes you to become stuck
 with a background screen if you cancel the dialog without selecting a
 button.  A possible fix for this is to add a slot that is triggered when a
 dialog is cancelled.  It would also be worth detecting the situation where
 there are no screens left and exiting the app.[[BR]]
 Note(3): Settings GUI for backend stop/start commands has not been
 reimplemented yet.  However, the code can be committed without this since
 it will automatically disable that facility if the settings are undefined.
