Add keystroke for next/prev folder when playing through
folders (i.e. not a playlist). Key combination is Pause
then long Prev/Next key (Remote is short press of
Prev/Next). Have tested on my Archos Recorder V1 and
Archos Studio 10, but should work across other targets.
Hopefully with this combination other features are not
compromised, as this is a normally unused key
combination, but is still simple enough for those who
want it.
This task depends upon

Additional comments about closing:  we have such a feature at least for iriver (but I think it\'s still undocumented -- see the keymaps) and due to the button action code this is way outdated. If this feature is missing on other devices please open a new task.

Not sure if I understand correctly, but isn't this what the
menu option "folder navigation" is already about?

The only folder navigation option on my archos (that I know
of) is to automatically move to the next folder after
finishing the current one, when playing through a folder.
This patch allows a key press combo to allow to move there
while maybe only halfway through the folder, as well as
going to the previous folder.
I think maybe the iRiver already has this option with a
somewhat different key press, which also had an option to
enable/disable as it had the potential to alter the existing
behavior somewhat. I'm only guessing about this though as I
don't have an iRiver and the documentation doesn't show much
and a google of past discussions etc is inconclusive too.
