I decided to implement both options, as it took no extra logic to do so.

default is a time-based approach, as originally designed, but using a RC 
circuit to determine delay.  Thus, holding down reset for more than 1.5s 
will perform a full reset, less will reset to the current image bank.

However, the menu writer can select a bit in the config register that 
will override the reset behavior and reset to menu all the time.  Thus, 
folks can select which behavior suits them.
