    This would be a general information overlay where plugins can send updates to. Skinners would have to design it so it fits in with the rest of their skins of course.

    Usage scenario:

    * Downloading an Online Video clip, scraping FanArt or scanning the Music Database while playing back video in full screen - press Info on the remote and in addition to the Video OSD showing the video info, an (optional via plugin configuration) extra window is showing a small process bar, but it'll only be visible if there's a task in progress

    or

    * Downloading an Online Video clip, scraping FanArt or scanning the Music Database while on Basic Home, an (optional via plugin configuration) extra window is showing a small process bar, but it'll only be visible if there's a task in progress

    This could also alert the user for updates to skin patches, etc, but ONLY if that's setup in the configuration, and NEVER popping up when playing full screen media unless the Info button is used!

    No more jumping around MediaPortal's sections to see if tasks are finished, just kick back with a video and check on the progress with one single click of your remote.
