As I mentioned last night, one of the not-so-visible-yet changes in  
MythTV 0.22 is an overhaul of how screen elements are rendered... Its  
backwards-compatible with all current themes, and thus most have not  
yet been updated, but there *is* one new from-scratch theme in the  
works, using almost exclusively the new rendering infra:

Its still not quite complete, but its got a much less clunky look than  
most of the current MythTV themes, IMO.
