I don't have a duet yet but I'm interested. Since the duet seems like a very sleek remote it would seem that from a technological point of view it should be possible to use it to control other things besides sequeezeboxes.

If it is possible to scroll through directories of mp3-files, why not scroll through directories of avi-files? Squeeze center should then execute some external player and be able to pass keystrokes.
Some other possible way of course would be full UPNP-client functionality from the duet remote.

Is there any chance these thoughts become reality?

Technically, it is possible i guess. Are we ever liekyl to see it happen? I would be shocked and stunned if it did.
