This function is quite common on 'professional' CD and MD decks. It
usually also uses 'auto cue' which searches the beginning of a track
for a minimum pre-set audio level and pauses on that

It's usual operation is:
   user selects a track
   auto cue on that track
   user hits play
   play track
   auto cue on next track

The AJB would instantly become a great sample and sound effects
player. You could also DJ with two devices or add the AJB to your DJ

If implementable it would IMO make a great feature for RockBox..
