How 'bout I add a boolean flag to the MythSpinBox class that controls 
whether or not this behavior is enabled.  Default would be the current 
behavior, like so:

Default (flag false)
	Left/Right = dec/inc by stepsize
	Prior/Next = no-op

modified behavior (flag true):
	Left/Right = dec/inc by 1
	Prior/Next = dec/inc by stepsize

if no stepsize set, default to 10

What say ye?
