Default Remote friendly

Why not make bsplayer more remote friendly? Since HTPC's are getting more popular, bsplayer could be a nice choice for movieplaying. I am using it through MediaPortal to play movies. Although its a really good player it lacks some features that would be nice when controlling bsplayer with remote. As I wrote before, a key for cycling bookmarks. A key for forwarding a certain ammount of time, like 10 minutes or 5 minutes (configurable). Making an OSD for settings like "Color control" and "Jump to time" so you can control these with remote. OSD telling when the movie is paused. A key for switching between Random/Repeat One/Repeat All/Repeat Off. And OSD telling if its in random mode etc. OSD telling the title of the movie when starting playing it (configurable). The show time info button should display more info like, play mode (random/repeat/etc.) current playing movie, aspect ratio, pan&scan etc. etc.
These features would make me pay for BSPlayer!
