Green Button thoughts

I'm fond of the green button, but it could be even more useful.

Here's some ideas for making it more useful:

When in Fn menus, it resets the selection to the 'Green' selection (IE WB to AWB, ISO to Auto, Flash to standard, drive to single-shot).

CF to allow it to also reset exposure compensation in AE modes. This should also work in all AE modes (the Green button currently does nothing in Sv, Tv and Av modes).

Split the custom function for selectable line in TAv and M modes, and add Sv line as a selection for M mode (so I can get the camera to set ISO for my selected shutter/aperture in M mode, in addition to setting program line, Shutter or Aperture as it is currently). This also allows for different behaviour in TAv and M modes (I want Tv line in M, but Program line in TAv).
