Yes that's correct. You have to enable the skip mode yourself first, and the
existing skip mode skips forward/backward in fixed-sized chunks. The fs is
just a different alternative skip mode but you still have to activate the
skip mode to do it.
Perhaps (although unrelated to the current discussion), activating skip mode
should also change the behaviour of skip-to-next-directory (short+long) to
skip to next track instead. But then you lose the ability to skip to next
directory, etc.
Regarding using scrollwheel to change track position: you then lose the
ability to change volume. You still need some user-driven mode switch to say
what you want the various buttons to do, and this is no different really.
Perhaps a 'use scrollwheel' skip mode could ALSO be added, and then you need
to disable it to change volume, but that seems a bit convoluted in my
opinion. If you can think of an intuitive modeswitch to let user use
scrollwheel for track position, the same modeswitch could be used to
activate/deactivate skip mode too, rather than going to Settings menu?
