[mythtv] ticket 2935: Change MythMusic transport buttons to reflect current state

Making the change in 6 themes is one thing (mine, and soon to be
another addition to the family, FYI folks)...
But having to maintain separate versions of files is going to be a pain.
All the other theme changes I've had to incorporate in the past have
just added new elements. This is something altogether different.
Would there be any way of just making a new element so the two could
co-exist side by side for the time being?
Or instead of using a checkbox, use a different method to draw the
buttons & update them accordingly. Not being a coder myself, or
experienced in the mythtv ui code I don't know what the best way to go
about it would be.
When I first started looking at theming mythmusic I was surprised that
the button state didn't 'latch' like your patch implements.. all I see
is a brief flash of the 'active' button which made me wonder what the
point of having 3 images for every button really is...
So I'll reiterate that I like the idea of this, just not looking
forward to having to maintain lots.
One argument could be that I include a patch with all the themes &
tell users if they're running SVN past a certain rev, to use it - but
as I know from bitter experience readme files tend to go unread - end
result.. unhappy users.
