Yes, a few.
For the Program Finder screen, I really see this changing to remove
the overlapping functionality. I see the column with the data/time
getting dropped in favor of the new screen which would be selected
with enter/space from the program title column. I then see a new
column being added before the alphabet column to filter on program
For the Program Guide and Resolve Conflicts screens, some themes
include a legend at the bottom. The new key binding could be listed
there. Alternatively, a button to access the new screen could be
added to the standard and advanced options dialog.
Aside, is the doingSel/allowKeys stuff still needed? I'm guessing
it's a relic from the days when each screen had it's own window.
Also, with this new screen, there are now 4 dialogs with the same
basic layout (Program Lister, Rank Programs, Rank Channels and Resolve
Conflicts). Would there be any objection to introducing a new
MythListInfoDialog class to contain the common functionality?

I've actually done something like this for my own copy. I've chosen a
couple of keys on my remote near the directional control to act as
secondary and tertiary "actions" and changed the code to use those
