Is there a reason Poweramp uses rewind/fast forward buttons for previous/next?

One thing I've noticed with Poweramp over the years is that it uses rewind/fast forward buttons instead of previous/next for the previous/next function, is there a reason for this?

You don't really notice it in the player UI unless you enable the pro buttons but it's always visible in the notification.

The (ISO/IEC) standard prev/next track button signs are |<  >|, and double triangle << >> are for the rewind/fast forward. Poweramp does retain that rewind/fast forward functionality for a long click, but the current shape is mostly historical and we don't follow icon standards here anyway (it forces specific shapes, for example, arrows should be narrow: https://www.iso.org/obp/ui#iec:grs:60417:5107B , aslo google for "next song icon" to see range of used icons for the action) and skins are able to change that, but it seems no one ever requested that 😉
