But those require additional buttons on the remote.  It's far simpler to 
have one FFWD and REW button than  two sets.  If the new code can't 
provide the same functionality as the old then it's kinda silly to put 
it in IMO since the benefits don't out weigh the loss in functionality 
unless I'm completely missing something here.
