Because one button opens a 3-item menu and the other a 2-item menu.

Not possible/usefull with the current style. The buttom images desturb the
display, they clutter above the text.

Just the same like the settings
Shuffle mode: ON
Repeat mode: All
Show files: All
Up/Down to select the topic you want to switch. Left/right to switch throu
the option modes (on, off, etc). F2 toggles on/off this menu.
This gives the benefit of being able to create more of such items by simply
adding one. And F3 is free for something else.

Are or will be?
How (and where) is keyboard senitivity done?

You told me on IRC, that all this will be redone. So I didn't start to do
anything in the current mess of buttons, symbolic button names and hard
codes button values.
One the other hand I think it needs a bigger redesign for the button styles
(the current bit-mask-thing for buttons sure needs a redesign). And for
sure I'm not the man to do such a thing. I always need to dring valerian
tea if i look at C-sources. And rockbox.c does raise the quantum. And the
bash with the hyper compiling slowness is the nail for my coffin.

Its very lonely there. Some chinese will be there soon I heard. No Kazaa,
no power plug to recharge. I only see disadvantages in flying to the moon.

I think we need to invent a voting system for the features. :-)
