You can find the code under ticket #1796. It was rejected but I implemented 
it over the weekend against 0.20a and it worked with only one minor change 
(I had to modify the file extension filter to include uppercase file 
extensions). My mythmusic also has changes for fixing the burning of MP3s 
(some issues interfacing to cdrecord on 2.6 kernels) as well as an 
implementation for burning audio CDs, so its probably easier to cut and 
paste the original code than take what I have. 
As for the implementation, I find having the slideshow option as part of 
mythmusic makes the most sense for my household. Even my 7 year old daughter 
knows how to drive it. We are far more likely to change the current playlist 
(4 people, 4 different tastes) than the visual so the music is the main task 
while displaying images is a secondary item. I'm not sure how it would go if 
music was is the background .... although I haven't seen the suggested 
implementation... It's a very nice feature having the family photos cycling 
away while playing music.
