Subject: Have different Playback settings based on folder

Have different Playback settings based on folder

My audio consumption could be divided into two groups: spoken-word and music.

Is there a way to customize Rockbox so that when I'm listening to any file contained in the /spokenword/ folder, the playback buttons function differently than when I'm listening to a file contained in the /music/ folder? I know I could do this manually, but I'd rather Rockbox be able to automatically switch back and forth between 2 configurations.

Here are some of the differences I want:

For all files in music folder or all its subfolders
Device sleeps if no key-press in 30 minutes, with 30-minute time resetting after every keypress. This is to save on power in case I accidentally forget to shutdown/power-off.

For all files in spoken-word folder or any subfolder:

Playback speed set to 1.6X
Pressing Forward or Backward buttons do not skip to the next or previous track.
To skip to tracks, double-tapping Forward or Backward is needed. Or holding Home, and then tapping Backward or Forward button.
Pressing Backward goes back 10 seconds, while pressing Forward advances 10 seconds.

I would like to get this on my Sansa Clip Plus (running Rockbox 3.13).
