No; that results in the situation Mike Dean described. Besides, I like
being able to push Play to, well, play, from Watch Recordings.

I don't disagree. 0.21's context-sensitive jumppoints was certainly a
step in this regard. 0.22's use of two, separate popup menus in Watch
Recordings and MythVideo seems like a backward step in this regard,
though. (I realize this situation existed before 0.22, but as recent
threads have demonstrated, 0.22's requirement of a second "menu"
button has exacerbated the awkwardness.)
