There will always be people that call a feature you consider essential
as useless. The main problem with track skip (or study mode, as it was
confusingly called initially) is that there was *no* previous
discussion, *not even on IRC* -- something that was called
"drive-by-commit" earlier. If there had been a discussion before the
commit I bet most devs would have agreed upon adding the feature after
bringing it into shape -- i.e. after cleaning up the naming and usage
mess it had been initially. In such a discussion you would still have
found someone disliking the feature though ...
