Bisect isn't correct. Bisecting means to cut something into 2 parts.
Using "halve" doesn't make sense. Binary doesn't either for that
matter. My suggestion is to call it "adaptive skipping".
"adaptive skip value":
Defines the how many seconds to skip forward/back when pressing 1/3.
Valid range is 10-600.
"adaptive skip alternate behavior":
If enabled, adaptive skipping will only adjust the adaptive skip value
with key presses that change the skip direction. Otherwise, the skip
value is halved with every key press.
"adaptive skipping reset":
Defines how long to wait without a key press before resetting the
adaptive skip value back to its original setting.
That to me describes what those do much better. Btw, the definitions
seemed like they could use a touch-up too so I threw in suggestions
for those as well. :)
