I for one would love an animated background option for the simple reason
that I do not like static images on my TV for a long time. I only use a
TV with my Myth box, and while I don't have a rear-projection, I can
imagine some people would love to avoid burn-in.
Besides, it would just look cool. On the latest theme I made I have a
sky background; how cool would it be to have the clouds slowly move by
in a loop animation?
And of course we could default all this stuff off to appease those who
are trying to run Myth on a 16 MHz 386 ;).
