left,right,up,down will also be possible. And perhaps some iRiver-specific
keys of which I have no knowledge off.
I will consider the .cfg listing. For me it's not neccesary, because I
only have 2 .cfg's, but I can imagine that other people might have more.
The listing would mean 2 extra keypresses though... A combination of the
two types of .cfg loading is of course possible too, or make it
configurable. There'd only be need 2 options then: 1 - load key.cfg, 2 -
show .cfg list; 1 enabled by default (which is only active when suitable
.cfg's exist - no interference with 'normal' operation).

Thanks for the feedback,
