There's a small problem with your patch you can't have libmythui depend
on libmyth because of circular dependency problems. Easy to fix though
just change gContext->GetMainWindow() to GetMythMainWindow();

I guess some people really don't like change but I would urge you to at
least give the new interface a try. The aim is to make things more
consistent throughout Myth. Having the right arrow do one thing in on
screen and something completely different in another just isn't user
friendly IMHO.

The problem with having to have two menu buttons will go way when the
patch on ticket #6814, or something similar, is committed.
