We can already add a webcontrol that would allow display of some of this
info, just need the ability to tell mythui to never give focus to the
control (I logged that as an issue some where)

I guess then using javascript and the new webservices API's you could
display just about anything although it wouldn't be interactive

Ive been using the mythbuntu notify-send as a work around
