Wow, this is (almost) the hack I always wanted:
It solves my biggest problem while using the jukebox in the car:
Until now I could not reliably skip a song in a radio recording without
looking at the screen.

Only problem I see is that the "ffwd/rev interval" setting is used.
My usual skip would be the 3:30 length of a song, at my current
0:15 setting that's 14 button pushes :) - so it would be great if
the quick skip could be independent of other values.
