I just saw that we already have a play/pause hotkey, which should remain freely configurable.

Attached is a patch which hardcodes the space key to play/pause action in core. This works fine for the macosx interface and still can be overwritten with assigning the space key to another action. Would this be also ok for all other interfaces?

Best regards,
