I agree that any UI redesigns should wait for libmythui.  However, 
regarding mfd... it's been a long time, and mfd still hasn't been 
declared 'ready'.  Not to put any pressure on Thor :-)  I think that 
MythMusic could be re-designed in such a way as to separate the UI and 
music collection/delivery functions.  That way, the UI could be migrated 
to the mfd architecture without too much effort.

Plus, I think one of the things holding mfd back from the main Myth 
distribution is the lack of a mature frontend UI.    It's kind of a 
chicken-and-egg situation; something's got to come first.  I say, don't 
wait for mfd; develop a solid UI and "it will come".

Just my $0.02.
