currently i have my maximum commercial skip set at 7 minutes, i have
seen a valid commercial break of over 6 minutes (MTV especially) but
nothing over 7.

i like the idea of getting rid of a bunch of settings in general but
maybe we could compromise.  i know there has been discussion in the
past of having a basic view and an advanced view...maybe that could
work better?  though probably more work.

what does everyone else think?  i guess once we start removing
settings we'll really hear what settings people like if they get
removed ;)
