[vdr] DEBUG_OSD or skincurses

Thanks Darren.

I got the 27/Jan xine-lib and xine-ui and recompiled as per the instructions 
on http://www.vdr-wiki.de/wiki/index.php/Xine-plugin  with vdr-xine 0.7.0 
and it now works.  Hoo ray!
I can watch the vdr:/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes   stream.

I'd still like to get plain shell-text window control of VDR.

I tried calling the skincurses plugin, but it doesn't seem to work.
Should I try DEBUG_OSD?  If so, how?  I understand you need to set DEBUG_OSD 
during compile?  Do I put something in the VDR Makefile ?
