Cool.  But it says ITOS 2006 breaks it.  Will it work with the N800 /
ITOS 2007?  If so, the page should be updated.

I like it.  It's just not what I usually want.  A usability study
would have shown that most users most of the time want to scroll down,
not go to the next link in a web page.  So I would just swap, down/up
scroll down/up, and hold down/hold up do previous/next link.
