RE: how should the settings screen work?

I obviously vote #4.
(along with Paul's clarification -- after applying with SELECT, LEFT would
exit rather that cancel).

Subject: how should the settings screen work?

ok, time to solve this once and for all...

we have 3 (possibly 4) options on what each key should do in the setings
screen, and I would really like to get a final answer on how it should work.

1) like it was before actions. left and right both accept the setting and
exit, off cancels and on accepts
2) like it is now, off and left both cancel and exit, right and on accept
and exit

the next 2 options require lowlights patch which adds a little tick icon
next to the currently selected option, but i cant find the link and i dont
tihnk its on FS :( (you can see a screenshot of what it looks like @
http://users.monash.edu.au/~jdgor1/screeny.bmp )

3) on - move the tick (i.e change the selection) and say in the screen,
left/off exit the screen using whatever is the ticked option for the
setting.

4) LEFT cancels, RIGHT applies and backs out, SELECT applies and stays in
the menu without any splashes at all?

So, which option do we go for?
OR, do we add an option to allow all 4 (or 3 or 2) of them and just argue
about which shuold be default?
