Only problem still to solve is some way to detect--and inform the 
watcher--when the crawl goes away.  Often my local stations will put a 
crawl on bottom and "static" info on the left side, so I zoom in to the 
show area.  Then, I'll often find 20 minutes later that I've been 
watching the last 10 minutes of the show cut off because the info was 
only displayed for 10 minutes or so.
