I recall that you had stated some time ago that you were working on a
screensaver plugin for mythtv.  I don't recall hearing anything after
that.  Have you made any progress on this?  My understanding is that at
the moment mythtv only supports DPMS and not xscreensaver.  I would like
to be able to have a slideshow of mythgallery images displayed for a
screensaver using either xscreensaver or mythgallery, however I don't
believe we currently have this capability.  Am I wrong or is anyone
working on this feature?
