Volume buttons as switch track!

I have never owned an Apple product before the iPhone, and one of the main things I hate in terms of an MP3 player is that I can't switch tracks without the screen on - and even then, I would need to be able to see it to press the right spot on the screen.

I know it would not be difficult, and I think it would be great to have an option in settings like:

Volume buttons change track: (options:)
- When screen is off
- When screen is off w/ vibe
- When screen is off w/ ringer
- Never

It would just be so nice to be able to reach into my pocket and just hit the button... save battery too!

95% of the time I am listening on shuffle and occasionally don't want to hear the track, so I want to get to the next track!

It could even be something like "double press" changes track, or "hold for 2 seconds" changes track, etc..

The iPhone has so few buttons, we need to be able to make the most of them!
