Solved Settings level button for Gotham
With settings descriptions, smarter default values for Gotham, a cleaned up audio settings page, and the fact that we're not adding anything from advancedsettings.xml to the GUI, even if we had everything "dumped" on one page it would still an excellent improvement from v12.

We can still mark settings with levels for a kiosk mode and for "expert" level settings, should they ever be introduced. Or we could use the level to color code the settings, as shown in some of the ideas from the skin developers thread (gives far warning without hiding the setting). The difference between most of our "normal" and "advanced" level settings are a gray line anyways.

Smart sub-grouping certain settings onto their own sub-page, like all the audio passthrough stuff, makes a lot more sense to me than toggling a "mode". This also allows us to add more settings to the GUI without making settings more complicated. Sub pages don't even have to be about how "advanced" they are, but simply as a way to better organize things so users find the settings they want to change. I think it's the perfect way to balance XBMC's ease of use with its highly customizable nature.
