Hi Fred,

Not in a theme alone, you'd need to write code to create more optional
buttons and to add whatever functionality you'd want to attach to
them.  It sounds somewhat like what Stuart has in mind for touchscreen
capability in MythUI, though, which is essentially a "touch OSD" that
can pop up on gesture/touch/whatever and add some context sensitive
buttons/a faux remote/whatever.
