That looks pretty cool!  But I didn't know about squeezeslave yet either.

It would be interesting if MythTV supported "widgets" or "portal"
screens that contain multiple plugins, wouldn't it?  (like weather,
music, RSS and upcoming recordings all on one screen, for example, or
even pop-up overlays on live TV)  This is a good example, because the
SqueezeBox display you are emulating doesn't take a lot of space, but
a myth plugin has to be full-screen, right?

What's the quickest way to compile new plugins like this on Gentoo
BTW?  I usually stick to ones that already have ebuilds, but I really
want to try your squeezecenter.
