[mythtv] [PATCH] MythMusic incremental search

Excellent addition, I've been wanting something like this for quite a
while as the edit-playlist performance kills my machine :(  This is a
lot less painful!

However I have a couple of suggestions to improve the WAF of the modification
* Remote Control usage
   - Instead of '1' mapping to '1', could it map to 'delete last
character' ...as currently on my remote I appear to have no way apart
from exiting and restarting to remove a char.
   - I dont' have 'enter' mapped to any remote-control key, so perhaps
it would be useful to provide a set of buttons at the bottom of the
screen for the various options (Play selected, Play all etc).
* General usage
  - It would be great if you could highlight the letters that have
caused the track to be displayed, explaining the alpha-numerics to the
g/f is just plain painful otherwise ;)
  - I would prefer to play the track I've searched for immediately
rather than just adding it to the end of the playlist, perhaps this
could be a configurable option, or having two types of button, enqueue
or play buttons ?

Other than that, its wicked, cheers Jerome ;)
