I've been having a play with this myself. The patch didn't apply cleanly 
to svn trunk but I managed to massage things so it applied. I'm having a 
couple of problems with it though. The menu music  is cut of abruptly 
because it is too long for the preview clip and the highlight image gets 
scrambled after the first run through of the previews. The supplied 
theme also needs some work to make it more generic.

Best not to send such a large file to the list. It will probably get 
rejected anyway. You can email it to me and if I can get things working 
properly I'll add it to svn.
