[mythtv] Inefficient guide listings...

Hi, I'm thinking of maybe putting some energy into making an
alternative guide listing. Today, the listing is horizontal with
increasing time on the horizontal axis. For me, this causes listings to
be very difficult to read (and slow to browse). Most shows here in
Sweden do not begin on even half-hour bondaries. Also, the current
method wastes a lot of screen space on blank areas where it would
better serve to have text from the listings, I think. So the listing
that I'd prefer would look something roughly like this:
(Assume current time is 20:05)
Chan start end description
CNN 1800 2100 World news
BBC1 2000 2100 Monty Python
(currently running shows above in some color and coming shows below in
BBC2 2030 2100 More news
The main point being that I could see more of the description for each
show than just a couple of letters as it is today (on my setup).
So, before digging into this, I'd like to know if someone is already
working on this?
Or if there are other comments on the usefulness of this guide listing?
Is it difficult to do?
(Ideally, I'd like to do listings in this format also in the web
listing, if time permits.)
