After a brief look at SDL_gui I can say that it doesn't look like a
good fit for mythtv because of the complete lack of documentation. The
fact that the main web page hasn't been updated since sep. 2001 is a
little scary, and the update before that was in sep 2000. SDL_gui
doesn't have any default skins for it's UI, so someone would have to
come up with them before we could start playing with it. It also lacks
widgets for tree, slider, and list, so someone would have to write
those as well. QT has those, doesn't require you to come up with
graphics before using it, and has excellent documentation.
