I understand where you are comming from but still:

- it either has ListItem.Description or not (we can use IsEmpty here)
- little bit info like duration, votes etc. We can use ListItem.Label2 and ListItem.Label3 here + specific ones if really needed
- container.content. I would take a bit different aproach here and go with container.content(posters), c.c(squares), c.c(banners) here. If not set we use generic ones.
My skins:

Amber
Quartz

Personally I would like it rather sooner than later if possible and implemented in such a way that you would switch between posters and banners by switching views rather than making a XBMC toggle option.

For this to work we would need something like ListItem.Banner or ListItem.WideIcon

Yes. I agree.
That is the best way to go so any skinner (depending of the view layout) can choose what to use between ListItem.Thumb and ListItem.Banner.

Even if the multiple thumbs is not going to implement in the near future, I think TV Shows definitely need the banner thumb.

I would like to suggest dropping banner support altogether or fetching both posters and banners. Current situation is very confusing and there are many posts like "why my thumbs get stretched/squished"

I follow the thread with the changes to the skinning engine for Frodo waiting for this. Please do not skip this for one more XBMC version. It will resolve many misunderstandings from the users and it will save a lot of time for skinners.

Cheers

This should behave exactly the same as <bordertexture> but should be rendered on top of an image instead.

Is this a valid use case scenario?

Metadata is not a texture.
Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.
Do not e-mail XBMC-Team members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.

Any chance this could be adressed for Frodo? http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/13318

The main reason I'd like something like this is so an image can have round corners and keep it's aspect ratio.
