playback key for script + key masks

Is there any reason not to add "playback" to the script key list? On some cameras it is also used for alt (and aliased to PRINT), so there might be some confusion when adjustable alt is involved.

edit:
Also, when adding support for these it's a good idea to check the key mask. Since mode, playback etc were not in the chdk key list at all for a long time, they might not be masked.

Don't forget what the H stands for.

I don't see any reason not to add KEY_PLAYBACK to the list.

In cameras without KEY_PRINT, ALT_MODE_BUTTON will be mandatory if alias to KEY_PRINT Is removed. (core/conf.c uses KEY_PRINT as default ALT button)

Maybe ubtest.bas script should include more keys (video, playback, mode, zoom in/out), patch in attachment.

It's definitely a good idea. My script uses the display button, but there isn't one on the D20. The only unused buttons are playback and video, but both can be assigned as <alt>. The script checks  for <display> OR <video> but I also need to accept <playback> in case <video> is <alt>.
