When I play a MP3 file in "Repeat One" Mode, and I
want to skip the file and go to the next one, I've got to
enter the menue (F2) and change the "Repeat Mode" to
either "all" or "off".

What about this idea:

If u press RIGHT/LEFT once, u go to the begining of the
song u're listening to right now. But when u press
RIGHT/LEFT twice, u skip to the song before or after the
one u're listening to at that moment.
So the "Repeat One" function still works, but u have the
possibility to skip to another song, and listen to that one
in "Repeat One" mode as well, without having to access
the F2 Menue, change the repeat mode, skip track,
access menue and change repeat mode again.
This task depends upon

Not that I understand why someone would want to listen to the same song over and over again, but I think this would be a nice feature. Perhaps have it assigned to the same keypress(es) that would cause a Next Directory change during regular linear playback.

Sometimes it happens... sometimes you meet songs that make you need to listen to them over and over and over! :-)

yes thats true. and imagine when I listen to NES soundfiles, you NEED to set the "reapeat one" feature. without it you'Ll never listen to the second song.
