Add universal support for ASR (automatic screen rotation) throughout the UI

It would be nice if the N900's UI rotated no matter what app you used. While third party apps can stipulate a specific mode such as portrait or landscape, the UI should support it natively in all parts of the UI.

The N97 is a perfect example of a similarly configure device that supports ASR and can be used as a case study.



Hardware-Keys should control Media-Player, even when locked

I want to use the Internet-Tablets as a media-player (like iPod). But it's difficult to change a song or the volume, when it's locked in my pocket. The hardware-keys like (+),(-) and (toggle fullscren) could be used to control media-player, even though touchscreen and keyboard is locked.
