Ah - sorry, I meant that users familiar with other devices are conditioned
into using different scenarios and that it would be good for rockbox to
provide (at least some) alternatives.. I did not mean to imply that
rockbox should start specifically adopting the behaviour of particular
original firmware(s) (it most definitely should not!)
