This has been on my TODO list for quite a while, but as I'm now working 
on a new menu customization scheme, please do go ahead if you want to 
implement a clock themeable element.  It's not quite as simple as 
"moving" mythweather's clock display to Myth's menu interface; there 
would have to be code involved.  Mythweather may be able to *position* 
its time display via a theme element, but it actually has to create the 
object & update the time in code.

If you're able to code and want to pursue this, we can move this over to 
the -dev list.  Otherwise, I may get around to it someday.
