I will admit that putting it into the theme makes it more annoying for
users to modify, but then they will have to do it anyway for any theme
which uses skined lists (as this patch would break all themes if it
wasnt ignored by skins, which iiuc it is).
However, that is a very fixable solution, either in code at parse (or
even run)time, or with a script on the PC to modify a skin file (or a
plugin on the DAP).
Further, the internal sbs is already autogenerated from the user
settings, so even if this (mis)feature was really wanted, all it would
require is the setting and half a dozen lines in
apps/gui/statusbar-skinned.c (in sb_create_from_settings() ) to setup
the list viewport correctly. This would also then allow
apps/gui/bitmap/list.c to be heavily butchered as *all* lists would be
drawn by the skin which means much cleaner code and no more code
