I have not even had time to even look at the 'beyond the foreground' of the 
new recording screen, but I must say that it was a relief to use and that I 
was stumped to find this not beeing the only screen, but still the entry 
level basic screen is present. What is up with that? I distinctly recall you 
stating that you would have a screen that would eliminate the split of the 
recording screens (and I agree), but why was this not followed through?

Anyways, I'll try to push in a slot for looking over this code you wrote, but 
at the moment I'm trying to prepare a new release of my experimental patch.

I'd say that more top level groups would be better than options burried in 
8-10 level deep options screens, which contains what? 45-60 options, now that 
is definatly confusing. I find myself lost in there myself, trying to find a 
option I know is there, but not sure of where.
