I disagree.  FF/RW are very important...I have problems understanding some
dialog sometimes, and it's nice to be able to RW to hear it.  Plus,
sometimes the commercial skip isn't perfect (or just plain doesn't work)
and I need to FF through commercials.  I see no reason to get rid of this
crucial functionality.
