Purpose of themes are public usage of MythTV (in this case, for me, it is for
cyber cafe, as I have Direct TV, huge collection of videos, music and games).
That mean how ALL dialogs with any sort of the settings (so, it is about the

the items in the main menu, and can be cranked out in half an hour by
someone with no prior knowledge of the XML schema.
