I have finally posted my patches to myth and mythplugins for mouse support 
Trac ticket #3930.  There are some things to note:

1.) The patches were checked against 9/3/07, 9:43pm EST SVN of myth.
2.) Items working are MythMusic - Play and select, not import or add, 
MythDVD (back button added), mythvideo - Not Video Gallery.  MythTV (TV 
functions) have not been modified.
3.) I could not post the theme I modified to get the "back" button to appear 
on the plugins and main menu.  The theme is about 1.2 MB, and need a place 
to send it, so please let me know what I hsould do.

Please check out the patch and my ticket.  I'm not familiar with this 
process, so I did the best I could.

I will continue working on this as time allows, updating the latest SVN to 
add touchscreen support to more items.  All changes I made and prefixed and 
suffixed with comments.  Adding support to more mythplugins should not be 
hard, but getting the support in lower level control code is sometimes not 
so easy.
