This sounds really interesting but unf. something I can't really help
with (both time and abilities!).

I still think making myth output to a RFB is not the right approach but
I can't say why I get that feeling... I guess it does have several
advantages, but I still feel that creating a new "frontend" that creates
the UI directly and streams it feels more correct. Perhaps using some of
the upnp support in the backend? I really don't know what I'm talking
about here...... :D
