The ability to customize the order of the colored buttons is something
I was hoping to see in the VDR
reboot/redesign/next-generation/whatever, after 2.0 is released. If
your patch is adopted before that, I don't think an altered button
order should be displayed if the skin doesn't support it since it
could cause confusion for the user -- more specifically the wives and
kids in VDR world. :)

In other words,
does the skin support button reorder?
  if yes, then reorder them in the osd
  if no, do not reorder them in the osd
