Well, the cSkinDisplayTracks menu should be generic enough to
be used to implement something along that road. Just note that
at least the version in VDR itself currently doesn't support
more entries than actually fit on the screen (no scrolling of
any kind). This menu was originally intended for a "small number"
of entries ;-)
