That's definitely a start, but it still leaves the LEFT button hanging,
and it only addresses the issue for that one sub-screen (recordings),
rather than all similar screens in mythtv.

I kind of envisioned a new "wrapstyle" for the theme that says whether
or not to have RIGHT do the menu and LEFT do "exit" as before in earlier versions.

Here, LEFT and RIGHT (and UP and DOWN) all behave at least as nicely as
they once did in earlier versions, in pretty much all sub-screens
including mythvideo etc..  But I didn't do it as a nice "wrapstyle" attribute,
which means some oddball themes might not be happy with it,
and so there's no point in even attempting to get my stuff upstream.

But it really really does keep the WAF way up there compare with stock 0.24.
For full support of all of the arrow keys, like they used to work,
I feel that a new wrapstyle attribute is what's really needed.
