...what I think would make this cooler is not so much an attempt to emulate
a normal keyboard and mouse but sorts of remote control setups kind of like
mymote but with a bit of Intelivision thrown in.

   It seems like you could have a mymote workalike that just sends keyboard
commands through the remotux daemon. It would be kind of like using 
mythfrontend as a desktop app (but kind of not).

   Just a screen dedicated to cursor controls would be handy in this respect.

   Arrow keys + return + escape would handle a lot of myth territory.
