	There are READMEs for each (mfd) plugin, but that's about it.

	Yup :-)

	Although it is certainly nearing the point of doing interesting things, 
it is still very much a work in progress. Run it on a Myth box and 
start iTunes somewhere on the same LAN .... that's kinda cool.

	The general idea is to take a non-content "consuming" activities (e.g. 
playing audio files, transcoding DVD's, ripping CD's, etc., etc.) out 
of the mythfrontend and build them into the mfd. And make it all 
network transparent (via the coolness that is Rendezvous). 

	Hard to explain, easier to see by looking at the code (such as it is).
