Shouldn't be much of a modification to enable fallback from
directfb to xv/x11 output (and or making it and option),
or am i completly wrong here?

And would not this imply one less special package to maintain?

I would wote for some -vo option for mythfrontend, so that
packages could be built with all optional output drivers,
although this would imply a couple of extra dependency
packages for pre-built binaries.

I'm probably going to be smacked on my head again... =)
