What I was trying to explain is that there is not point to loop when the 
list consist of only two buttons.
This is not the same a changing the wrapStyle to none, as I do want to 
be able too loop if there is more than 3 button.
Talking about consistency if any list of two items does not loop when 
the wrap style > none sound consistent to me, depends where you look for 
consistency ;)

Anyway, another way to reach this goal could be to create a new wrapping 
style ? (autowrap or something)
