In a couple of different screens, the button I'm using was already
assigned. But in one, the bookmark menu, it acts the same as before,
with a delete prompt. It's not assignable, just internally renamed. In
the other, the WPS, the button was hardcoded to show the playlist.
That's still the default behavior, but it can be assigned to another
function if desired. I tried to make it so that nothing changed without
the user's deliberate action. If you didn't know hotkeys existed, you
should be able to continue blissfully unaware of their existence.
Unless you assigned a hotkey by accident. But since you can do that
only within a context menu and requires a keypress that isn't currently
valid, that doesn't seem very likely.
