I waffled on the whether to connect it to the ON button, but got frustrated
one day when I hit and released the FFWD, which caused the next track to load.
 Given that I use my archos primaraly for long track audio books, this proved
that my clumsy fingers needed to remap just the FFWD, so that's what my patch
does. I think the basic functionality needs to be there; what key(s) it's
bound to is up to the integrator and core developers.

I'm going to play with the patch some more and may release another one that
allows the user to specify the Quick Skip and Instant Replay interval separate
from FFWD/REW.
