In regard to the buttonbar bit... if I knew there would be no outcry I would
remove this in a second.... Does anyone have any suggestions how this oculd
actually work with the rest of the system? It causes a few problems being
outside the UI area (and potentially becomes useless if it is *in* the ui
area...) There is an argument that (at least currently) the only targets to
have that bar are the archos recorders which have a tiny screen so its
unlikely themers will want to do some of the fancy stuff... although that
doesnt really solve the problem.

I *really* dont want to get into a situation where we have to have nasty
IF_BB(true/false) sort of macros hanging around the gui code (like how
IF_MV() is used in the ata code).
What might have to be done is before any calls to vp_getuiarea(), if a
screen wants the buttonbar displayed it needs to call an enable function.
This will also need to make the WPS bb-aware also (for backgroun WPS if that
