FS#8400 - Option to keep backlight off while changing volume etc.
Some operations — like changing volume, switching to next song etc. — just don't require looking at the screen or even taking the DAP out of one's pocket. Nevertheless rockbox will turn power-expensive and sometimes annoying backlight on for every single keypress.
