The patch makes Rec+Vol{Up,Down} in wps and list (main menu) contexts chage backlight brighness. Just like with volume, brightness value is saved in config file. I find this feature quite useful when player is used both indoors and outdoors, eps. on sunny days.

Keymap changes are for Sansa C200 only. Check apps/keymaps/keymap-<you-target>.c and add necessary lines to button_context_{standard,wps} if you use different device.

Diff against SVN revision 22666.

Hm, wasn't aware it's configurable. Agreed, that might be viable alternative — less convenient as for me, but doesn't require patching.
