Until a few days ago, I'd been using syth-lacquer-wide for quite some 
time, though it has some minor issues (preview window only works right 
for 16:9 stuff, opengl fades aren't particularly attractive). I just 
switched over to blootube-wide though, which handles both 16:9 and 4:3 
previews fine and looks much better w/the opengl fades.

Also sorta liking MePo (nice to see something that's almost entirely 
different from anything else), though I don't think it provides enough 
lines for plot info in Watch Recordings and like syth, only handles 16:9 
previews. Also seems to have a bit of wasted space in a few other 
places, and the mythvideo cover art isn't scaled correctly on the 
systems I've tried it on (its vertically compressed).

Oh yeah, I have blootube-* and ProjectGrayhem-* packaged up that I need 
to ship off to Axel for Fedora users... I should also get to packaging 
up the syth bits...
