Actually, I like the way proposed by Julien, it sounds pretty much ok.
Afaik, xawtv (the TV app, yes) also uses mousemotion events to show/hide
the pointer when the pointer is in the TV-window. This way, after 3 sec
idle in the TV-window, the pointer autohides, and comes back when moving
(and it won't disappear when it has moved outside the TV window).

And of course, in the same fashion, you can also program a status bar or
whatever. Just make sure the status bar, like the mouse pointer, appears
when moving and/or when the pointer is outside the TV-window (i.e. on
the bar), and only hides when the pointer is idle on the movie-window

I like the idea, but ohwell, that's only imho! ;-).
