It's allright. I suppose those vo how add a memcpy have either no
choice or are badly coded :(

Something else come up to my mind. You intercept key press like vo aa
does. If possible it would be nice to use commands for that, like it's
done for contrast,brigthness, etc controls. Dunno what other think about
this, but personaly i don't like that vo intercept key press as it can
screw up ppl wich use non-standard key config.
That is absolutly not a critical issue, but in my experience if that
doesn't get fixed from the start it's never done :(


Everything is controlled by a small evil group
to which, unfortunately, no one we know belongs.
