If Klaus will decide to implement the scrolling of cDisplayTrack in VDR,
can i ask to make the track menu implemented in terms of some more
general "compact menu" object?
Having such a "compact menu" will make implementing a preferred channels
list trivial, and can be useful for something else,too: a preferred
commands list, or a preferred plugins list, for example.
