I like the caption backlight (and it's 100% COOL), but I (currently) tend to
not want to look at the old song, but at the new song when it is already
playing 10 or 15 seconds.

By then the caption backlight is easily too soon off again :-/

Thus I respectfully request:
A configuration option "caption backlight before end" and "caption backlight
after start", both in a range of, say, -15 to 45 seconds.

So with "caption backlight before end" = -5 and "caption backlight after
start" = 25 the CB would come on 5 seconds after the new song has begone and
it'd shut off 25 seconds after the song started. Disallow bad combinations of
start and end (i.e. end time -5 and start time 3), or simply let the CB off in
these cases.
This task depends upon

It's my first patch and I don't know much C but it works fines for me.
Maybe someone with more C Skills can have a look at it.
And it's only for the backlight, not for the remote_backlight since I can't test it.

BTW You can now choose the time before the track ends and the backlight goes on.
The time the backlight is on for the next song is still the backligh_on time.
