I still have not heard anyone say that "killall mythfrontend" is a bad idea.
I'm ok with having to quite one mythfronted  and launch another on a
different display.  I just need to know the safest way to script the
mythfrontend quit. 
Besides if I had two running I would still have to have script that switched

At least in my IR setup focus does not have effect because the lircrc
specifies mythtv as the destination for the command so both frontends will 
get the same command regardless which has the focus.

You can always move to irxevent or something similar.  In this case, lirc is
used to simulate key presses which will only interact with the currently
focused window.
