> gui-based plugins for mythtv using the script-language python.
> This plugin makes it possible to create much easier plugins to watch for

> XBoxMediaCenter shows us, how successful such a plugin can be: 
> http://www.xbmcscripts.com has a gigantic collection of user-contibuted

> MythPython is totally based on libmythui (see task #12) and has two new 
> MythUITypes on board (which are in an early stage at this point): 
> MythUIManagedTreeList and MythUILineEdit.
> To build MythPython you need cmake, python with development files and MythTV 
> SVN. (MythTV 0.20 may also work, but is not tested).
