It already does the first part, it did not allow skipping if you were at the end
and there were no more commercial flagging marks after your current position.
I just committed a patch to CVS to disable skipping when the last commercial
flagging marker is less than 10 seconds from the end of the recording. It
will instead display the "At End, can not Skip" message that it normally
does when you are at the end of the recording and there are no more commercial
flagging marks after your current position.
