FS#5328 - Swich off backlight when hold is on

On my device i keep the backlight always on most of the time. When i have the device in my pocket i don’t need the backlight, but i still have it set to “always on” because i dont want to go through all the menus to swich it off (or to a low timeout) and when i take it out the whole procedure again.
So what i would like to see in Rockbox is a quick way to toggle the backlight behaviour with the hold switch (backlight off when hold is activated and backlight on when hold is deactivated). I think the hold switch i a good choice, because most times it is only activated when you put the device in your pocket.
Of course, one should be able to activate/deactivate this feature.
In game plugins that feature should be deactivated (e.g. Doom, were you toggle the hold switch to run/walk)
I hope this functionality wouldn’t add too much bloat to Rockbox.

Seems to be a feasable idea to conserve iPod Battery Power.

Great Thinking
