[mythtv] mythlcdserver pattern

Hey there,

I have sketched out an implementation which would flash the keyboard  
lights when the tuners are recording.  When each tuner is just  
recording, a simple short flash, when it is being watched and  
recorded, a long flash.  Obviously it maxes out at three tuners.

Preface this with, "My C is _rusty_":
This is done using wackyd (http://www.joedog.org/JoeDog/Wackyd) and  
then scraping out the guts of the mythlcdserver application to  
replace the Lcdproc calls with libwacky calls.  Obviously this is a  
program that would need to run aside an existing mythlcdserver if you  
actually have an lcd (which I don't).

Anyways, another less trivial thought is interfacing with a slim  
devices slimserver, but not as an lcdproc driver.

Are the signals and slots intended to be the abstraction layer or is  
there an opportunity to extract something more abstract (and less  
LcdProc focussed)?
