pre-defined skip increments

I have a suggestion for radio program listeners. Please
consider adding a
new mode in the sound settings called Predefined Skip.

In there would be an option to turn on pre-defined skip

When this mode is on, When the track is playing, if the
user presses
fastforward or rewind, it would display 30
press again it would display 60
press again it would display 90
press again it would display 120

<User lets go of button>

It would then start counting, if the user does not press
anything within 2
seconds, it would skip that many seconds forward or
so three clicks is 1 1/2 minutes in
Similir to a TIVO

This would be so much easier than pressing and holding
the ffwd and rewind
button down

What do you all think? please reply back if you think
this is a Useful

This task depends upon

I like the idea (maybe because I'm a TiVo 30s skip user), but
I'm not sure of the interface. Pressing FF/REW is for skipping
tracks, which I personally wouldn't want to lose. What ever
happened with that customizable interface talk?
