Correct. I think of there being two modes, one "while playing" and the other
for all other times. I would NOT want to play a bookmark automatically when
"while playing".

Ben, thanks again for this mod. I love it. My customers are always asking
for demos of this unit. It's a pain to have to start it up, write down where
I am in a book, do the demos and then find my place again. This completely
solves that problem and lets me move easily between books and music.

Hey Archos, Rockbox and I sold the 5th FMR today. One of my route salesmen
came in, saw mine, loved my demo and went out and bought one. He was also
interested in audio books while traveling his route. The bookmarks sold him.
Pay attention and support these developers! I've only had mine a couple of
months so that's a pretty good "sales" record. Guess I need to hit up Best
Buys for some sort of commission :-)
