Comment (by Github):

 Make users have to figure out if their video works

 Make new users use the old, legacy, UI painter that doesn't work
 properly with some themes and that's missing features.  This way, people
 just starting with MythTV will be stuck with using the wrong painter
 unless they happen to notice the setting buried in frontend Setup, and
 they happen to read the help text which says that the default value is
 only for use on systems with broken OpenGL (either broken hardware
 or--more likely--broken drivers or possibly even broken higher-level
 software, such as X or Window Managers).

 FWIW, all users who successfully used the OpenGL painter (or Direct3D
 for Windows users) on 0.24-fixes should go into Setup and change "Paint
 engine" to use the "Auto" setting.  The only users who should ever use
 anything else are those who have broken OpenGL implementations and
 cannot or choose not to fix their systems.

 Restores the ThemePainter setting (originally removed in fb45eb9fe) as:
 Paint engine
 This selects what MythTV uses to draw. Choosing 'Auto' is recommended,
 unless running on systems with broken OpenGL implementations (broken
 hardware or drivers or windowing systems) where only Qt works.

 Apologies for the last-minute string addition.  Refs #10457.
