When I say that it's easily expanded, I mean *easily*, as in about 2
minutes of work. But so far the only requests I've had are for delete
(which is what I wanted all along) and insert. What others are wanted?
Some make no sense at all, such as opening submenus and the like, but
others might be useful. I stayed away from the WPS screen because
there's already a "hotkey" of sorts on that screen that opens the
playlist. I suppose I could take it over and make the button do
anything else on the WPS instead of hardcoding it to the playlist. Like
pitchscreen. :) That would be nice. Anything else?
