Some things will never be easy on the Player. When we can't be
compatible with the Recorder UI we must find new ways.

For the time I think that being in line with the recorder is
something to consider. It makes it easier to move between units. Some
users have two machines and it makes the code easier to maintain. I
once did an overhaul of the two interfaces in order to make them in
sync but that was a long time ago. Maybe it needs to be done again.

For the Player maybe a completely new interface is the way to
go. Ignore what has been done and come up with a new interface!
