I can do this, but I don't know if this is a good idea.  It means that you 
have to run and install mythweb on each frontend to update the mixer theme.

If you give the user running the web-server write access to the myxer 
settings, it can update the settings directly.  But this is a serious 
security risk.  On the other hand, I think most frontend boxes are only 
accessible from the LAN.

It's also possible to generate a config file that can be used by 
MyxerCustomizer to update the settings.  So you create a theme with "my" 
myxer configurator, download a config file and use MyxerCustomizer to do the 
needed changes.

Or "my" myxer configurator gives you a shell script that you can execute.

Mhh, I think I will go for the security risk for now and update the settings 
directly.  But first I have to add a submenu so you can choose the text
