Making the scrolling configurable with UpdateEnigma.sh is the best overall
solution.  I like how you have divided it up by menu elements.

I doubt anyone will want to mix marquee with one-directional scrolling.  Making
this a configure option in text2skin should be fine.

Is the space after "SCROLL_ " on purpose?
