One interesting solution, which I think perhaps you mentioned would be
to take what is now the main myth UI window, which is scalable and has
to be fitted to the visible area of a given TV set and make that a
sepearate window laid over top of a new "root" window which is not
scalable and is always the same size as the screen and the same color as
the edges of the UI window so that they are seamless.
