FS#6980 - While Playing Screen - Context Menu

The context menu that is accessible by holding the play button while in the While Playing Screen is both useful and quite helpful.

Feature Request:
To keep in sync with the current idioms of rockbox I think it would be ideal to have this menu laid out in the same way the other menus are (Main Menu, Settings, File Browser) That is using icons and spacing and titling the menu.

Also I’m not sure if this would be effective but it may also be helpful if the menu can be accessed from the Main Menu Screen and appear as “Now Playing Menu” or something similar. This will allow users to see how the sub menu fits into the scheme of things, rather then it being a hidden shortcut menu. I also realize that this is doubling up on menus as it contains options available in the other menus.

I realize that this task would be quite time consuming and have little influence on the overall effectiveness of rockbox, but by using tabs and placing icons on the links i believe it will make roxkbox more useable for new users who find the menu by accident and are not sure what it is. It also gives rockbox a neater more consistent layout.
