RE: how should the settings screen work?

Hello all Rockbox enthusiasts, devs, testers, etc.
I'd like to convey the sanity of #4 with checkmarks again:
UP/DOWN selects items in dir
LEFT exists dir no change
RIGHT enters dir or applies setting and exits (up one level)
NAVI makes change but does not exit dir
An indicator of the current setting (like the checkmark) in addition to the
inverted line (or pointer) based on where your current selection is would be
The checkmark should 'jump' to the inverted line and pause for a tiny amount
of time when NAVI (or RIGHT) is pressed.
This would be very clear to the newbies IMO. Also this way (at least on an
iRiver H1x0) one could do everything with just the thumb.
That makes the most sense to me and lets the user know exactly what's going
on with little fuss.
PS: Big thanks to all the devs for doing all the hard stuff!

so, counting up the votes it looks like #4 with the checkmark icon wins...
so does anyone want to try for a last ditch effort to change everyones
any objections from the core guys?
