I'm not sure I agree with this. Rockbox is Rockbox, and the user will
have to get used to how Rockbox works, not the other way around. If we
follow this philosophy, we would have to add more and more "usage
scenarios" for each platform we port to, "ex iAudio users", "ex GigaBeat
users", etc etc.

I'm not entirely against the "scenario" idea, but I'm totally against
this particular reason; to make it behave more like the original
firmware(s).
