Not there, that is just a VideoList which is an interface for managing the
video list across various views.

It retrieves the container that was created when parsing the theme (not
really created/dropped). Same basic idea though, things which the list
should just do are currently done by the outer container (cursor up/down,
select, etc).

Ideally, the list would be signaling when something important happened (like
select/click), it doesn't work that way currently.
