I know that my 'core' isn't implemented completely on the Sansas. But
it almost is. The quickmenu doesn't belong to the core, imho, and I
think that it should be replaced with something more useful (maybe a
list where users can put their favourite menu items in?)
Having Power and Menu on the same button is not a bad thing, on the
irivers, the play button is also the power button.

Bye the way, I am left handed, too. I use the middle joint of my thumb
to reach the power button. For me the Sansa is easier to navigate with
(only) the left hand than my H120.
I don't have much experience with the sansa, I only used it a few hours yet.
