I think many settings in the configuration table could be changed in this
manner. Shouldn't we/somebody look at all settings and shrink the table?
Making special code for each setting will cost more code than we gain in
memory, and the settings area has 0x70 bytes left so there is no hurry there.

Or are you just more annoid that recorder owner lost two bytes? My first
vision was to to put the jump scroll settings where the font-name is laid (no
fonts in the player), but the font-responsible didn't ifdef any of his code
That would in my eyes gain a lot more space (but I didn't want to be first
with overloading settings).

...I just stole the format from "scroll delay" (not saying I can change, just
explaining that I'm follow the path of others).
