It has definitely been on my wish list so I'd be happy to test the
patch.

I have been thinking in other directions. I have a player so two lines
scrolling might not be that interesting although is is definitely
worth an experiment. Holding down a button could very well work as
well though.

What I have been thinking about is if there could be some way to
choose a letter and then go to the first file beginning with that
letter. We could have an alphabetic line, "abcdefg..." that you move a
cursor back and forth in to select a letter or just a single letter
rolling. Then press play and the ordinary browser pops up with the
first file beginning with that letter selected. But with so few
buttons all this might get to complicated to be interesting.

Yours
