Re: how should the settings screen work?

I do think that there should be an explicit button (Stop, most likely) that
actually wholly cancels when it leaves, but it seems to me that "Left"
should be treated as wholly navigation, not affecting the state of the
setting beyond where it's visibly set on the screen, so in the case of the
checkmark following the cursor (live updating settings) then you get
wherever the cursor was, in other settings you get wherever you left the
checkmark at.
