It's true that the patch does create a stack of windows, however each
window calls done(0) after the child window window returns,
effectively collapsing the entire structure when the Escape key is

I agree that the Right Way would involve some sort of callback to
main to handle the window creation/destruction, however, this was
just a quick weekend hack for my own uses and I wanted to make sure
it worked for me before soliciting any comments or adding any polish.
The current setup is really just a demonstration of how the new class
constructions work. I'm sure other people will have ideas on how to
use them - perhaps remembering the last selected movie for some
reason or another. You should be safe checking in the class changes
and ignoring the keybindings.
