Re: Context and action for mapping keys

Please don't add special actions for a single device. We try to make
all rockbox targets consistant with eachother so anyone picking up an
ipod immediately knows how to use it if they are coming from a clip.
Not only that, I'm very suspicious about how you plan on getting all
the standard buttons in with a keypad which doesnt appear any less
limited than the h300?

The keymap is the wrong place for this. If you want to provide
wps->file and wps->database it should be a user configurable option
for all targets.

Use the ACTION_HOTKEY action for that.
