Yeah, that's what I'm leaning towards..

Yup, that's already in there, and it's all in CVS now.  keybindings are:

  - V to open/close the PIP window
  - B to change focus between the two
  - N to swap channels.

and then all the other normal controls work once you've changed focus to the 
PIP window.

Still not a finished feature, yet, though..

Yup, this was really easy, though, so I figured I'd do it first.
