Hmm, that's a shame as I have just committed code to allow control of
the brighness of the playback markers (too bright and they clutter the
display) - so if you drag left or right the markers move if you drag up
and down they get brighter/dimmer.

So you can do this. Looking at the Scheme for the Playback from cursor
to end:
;Play from Cusor to End
(d-OneShotTimer 500 "(d-Play)")

I see that 




are the two bits of Scheme you need for your two commands, if you make
commands to execute those two and give them shortcuts then you have
what you want.
