It's part of the theme. I happen to quite like it but it was prompted by 
someone pointing at a nearly identical effect in another media centre. I was 
making a point that mythui could do the same thing - have a selected button 
larger than others, containing more or different information.

If you want to know just what is part of the widget and what isn't - the 
second mythgallery screenshot, with reflections on a black background is 
exactly the same screen. No code modifications, the differences are purely in 
the theme.

It's the clock, yes, when finished it won't be visible or it will appear 
elsewhere on the page so that it doesn't get hidden from view.
