Subject: Re: iRiver button usage for 3.0.

Re: iRiver button usage for 3.0.

I'd like to have hold rec to display the current playlist. So I think
it would be better to be able to configure the use of the rec-button,
since everybody seems to have diffent ideas for it (another examle
from an optimised build: jpg viewer or lyrics)

But I really would like to have your first suggestion. It is logical
to return to wps the same way as from the file browser/tagcache and
shouldn't be too hard to implement.

I would like to mention another annoying thing: The pitch control
conflicts with a-b repeat. When a-b is turned on, then it should be
disabled that a long press of play enters the pitch control screen.
