This is still the same for creating the button, but I would copy
mainmenu.xml to ~/.mythtv. Then it will override the default one and
you won't have to worry about it getting overwritten during updates. I
have hulu and boxee launchers in my media library menu and this works

>   <offset>0,0</offset>
> </buttondef>

I am not sure about images etc. this might be different with the new
mythui, I haven't stopped to look at that yet.
