And, FWIW, adding new keybindings (or using appropriately-named ones
that already exist in another context) specifically for a function like
this is perfectly acceptable. It's not that we want to force you to use
the menu, but that we want to make functionality available through the
menu for those who don't define certain bindings or who have limited
remotes without sufficient buttons, and we want to ensure you--and not
hard-coded key definitions--specify the key to use.
