OK...looked through 2532, and there's comments there about what remains to
be done, but not a whole lot on exactly what is currently been done.

I guess the best place to start would be to bring the branch up to the
trunk, then I can diff the codeline, see what's been done, look at the TODO
list at the end there, and go from there.

Hopefully I can get it stable and invisible enough to make mainline code.
Yes, I guess that means I'm tackling this.  My household -is- the perfect
testbed, and since I have a significant background in multi-user
authentication and authorization systems I'm pretty sure I can handle
multi-user TV's.
