Yes, I figured some people would :-)

My wife has gotten in the habit of doing
Escape, Select to jump back to All Programs.

Fair enough. I will re-enable the repeating
if there are more than container-size titles.
Unless we can think of a better way to do it?

(like a special symbol before the
  first and after the last title?
  Maybe just an ellipsis? :
  All Programs
  Programme A
  Programme B
  Programme C
  Programme D
  Programme E

There are also lists where I would like the jump
behaviour to occur (e.g. the "Delete Recordings" list
when I am trying to see the size of recent recordings).

I am hoping that when MythUI is everywhere, that there
can be standard scrolling list options.
