The BLANKSCR keybinding is still there but it looks like I forgot to
hook it up to anything. That's an easy fix :). The CYCLEVIS keybinding
is there and works as before. I'll think about reinstating the
keybinding to switch to the fullscreen visualiser can't just remember
why it was removed in the first place.

The visualizers currently do use a lot of CPU that's because MythUI
isn't very good at fast changing stuff like the visuals so they have to
be changed to not use MythUI directly but to use the underlying painter.
Goom also ignores the visual size settings which doesn't help either.
Mark K. did volunteer to look at it but has since left the project so
I'm going to have to figure it out myself. In the mean time if it's a
problem then use one of the less cpu intensive visuals like blank and
albumart or you could just remove the visual widget from the theme.
