Actually you can, just tried it on testing again. Hit the number field 
(the place where the numbers would appear and you get the contacts list 
and can chose one.

I guess both can be regarded as good and bad, my phone (samsung) also 
does it the way you proposed, but we looked at phones where it is like 
that ... hmm...

Haha, ok. I have to admit something. I am already abusing the aux-button 
for many purposes.

Right now, in testing, it switches the profile while on the launcher and 
the in-call volume (while in call of course). There is also a settings 
app which you have to activate in the paroli.cfg 
(/etc/paroli/paroli.cfg) which gets launched when you hold the aux-button.

So, to answer your question, yes it is doable and I already did that :) 
But the settings app still needs work that is why it is disabled by 
default :)
