Hi Sven,

I don't think that this is the main VDR's responsibility as VDR only
tells the *skins* to show the four color keys. The skin only receives
the four string it can show show any way it wants.

So any skin plugin has to implement this colour key reordering. A VDR
setup option will only avoid that any skin needs its own setup option,
but the skin still must _use_ it.

Personally I don't think this is much of use. Mapping yellow to yellow
and blue to blue and so on helps to identify the right key, doesn't
Thinking of remotes that order the color keys one below the other,
someone wants a VDR setting for this...

Just my 2cents...
