Sounds intresting...
But I would just list all .cfg files in the .rockbox folder... like the
"Browse cfg files" option does... Independant of the resume screen.

That would be more usefull on Iriver model's too... because they don't
have a F1, F2 and F3

And it would make it possible to use more config files..
