I've been asked to note that MythUI allows for both touchscreen and
tradition remote based UIs, so the differentiation is really up to the
themer.  What we're looking for is UI functionality that you would
like to see exposed to the themer rather than feature requests or
specific UI layouts.

Still think those UIs are pretty awful ;) but to each his own.
