I would respectfully have to disagree here.
Not everyone has enough buttons on their remotes to have
both keys mapped.
It adds another difficult to document "workaround" way to
get to functionality.
10x10 = 100 minutes - Which would be a drastic change in
behavior for those already configured in this way.
And in my very humble opinion, Myth already has too many
confusing shortcuts, as you note above. Adding another one
does not help this :(
