I haven't spent any time with the myth frontend code, so pardon my ignorance
here, but I was actually thinking it would be worthwhile to revisit some of
the core elements of the myth frontend in order to abstract the platform
specific calls to a common layer, like a graphics engine that lets you use
OpenGL, DirectX, etc. For example, maybe use a graphics engine like Ogre3D?
