FYI, I've been meaning to work on this idea:

http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/280157 (or search on
"RFC optional gallery")

but just haven't had the time.  Don't know how it fits into your plans
:)  I was also thinking it would be nice to "tag" the videos rather
than "categorize" them.  That is, be able to assign more than one
tag/category to a video, so that if, for example, in my mind a
particular movie is both Sci-Fi and a Horror, I could find it under
either category...
