I've been tossing around the idea of creating essentially an application that mimics the existing Boxee application but has no real functionality other than letting you click through the menus. Also would like to be able to adjust the screen dimensions to test for other resolutions.

Is anybody working on something like this, or is this just going to be a waste of time?

I've always thought someone should build something like this as it would be a great tool for application developers. As far as I know no one is currently working on an application such as this, go for it.

I'd love this. So much time I feel like I waste just getting things to position/align right when I'd rather be coding new features in python for apps.

Me third...

I can say that I have spent WAY more time on tweaking the skin XML, than the actual python that runs the app.
