Well the latter because it has much higher geek factor.  :-)

Reality check - I'm thinking something like a water-resistant screen + 
keypad, outside the shower but in the bathroom.  It doesn't even have to 
run myth - a vnc client to control myth on another system would do, so 
even a basic 200 MHz arm board would work, since this would be used to 
control mythmusic.  I use a 'throwaway' 486-based laptop to control the 
music on my deck via VNC.  No great loss if it gets trashed, and cheaper 
than a full outdoor setup.

Because I can?   :-)
