The Jump keys are "JUMPFFWD" and "JUMPRWND". When I initially added
the jump keys (back before there were keybindings), I copied mplayer,
I think, and had PgUp forward and PgDn reverse. The other half of the
world complained and it was changed to the text logic. The grass is
always greener... I'm content with the current default and anyone who
wants to change their bindings is welcome to do so.
