You've gotta love a response that starts with "A simple solution..." :)  
This was a great idea, and led me to think of another one... synergy 
(synergy.sf.net)!  I've tried it once, before I had my second monitor, 
and it was pretty good, this would just be perfect.

Basically it's a network-enabled cross-platform KVM.  I'll set it up so 
I just slide the mouse off the top of the screen and it will move over 
to the Myth frontend.

Thanks for the idea!
