after a bit of pondering... if you havent noticed yet longpress home acts as menu press....
simple solution. remap right menu captive button to APP_SWITCH. so for now those of us that heavily use the recent app feature can still feed out multi tasking needs.
simple as editing the /system/usr/keylayout/sec_touchkey.kl from
key 158 BACK VIRTUAL key 139 MENU VIRTUAL
key 158 BACK VIRTUAL key 139 APP_SWITCH VIRTUAL
