I'm thinking it's a good idea to keep left/right things mapped
equivalently on the surface. punch in/punch out don't have a left/right
orientation, so maybe they could work as shift1+loop/shift1+click. Which
would free up the top 2 buttons for ffwd/rew.

But that leaves quite a distance between play/stop and ffwd/rew, which
is not good.

Another possibility is to move play/stop to where bank switching is,
giving more buttons that are close to play/stop.
