You'd have to be pretty fast to skip to the next track, find out that
you want to fast forward and attempt to do it, all within 1 second. I
tried, and I couldn't trigger the next-dir skip by mistake. Maybe I'm
just old and slow... :-)

Well, there are no intuitive combinations left, are there? Is *any*
combination of keys intuitive?

We had a good long (private, unfortunately) discussion about which key
combo to use instead of this "double-click" combo, but we couldn't
figure out a nice one-handed way of doing it, at least not without
changing major parts of the rest of the UI.

Therefore I told Anton to commit it and let people try it.
