I think we're thinking along the same lines here Chris.  I was worried
that Daniel/Frank were about to reduce the four distinct keybindings to
a single one that would change function depending how many times the key
is pressed.  /That/ would be confusing!

Naturally, I expected the end user to set up the appropriate keys on
their remote for the keybindings.  (I don't suppose all countries have a
use for the coloured keys?).
