Just post the source when you have something working and someone will add it!

Magnus Íman hacked up a test font that is variable width and I added some
experimental code that uses the font on screen. It is still very basic and
not working completely. Add -DLCD_PROPFONTS to the CFLAGS in
firmware/Makefile to rebuild with variable width font support.

It is a bit of preparation for Greg's font stuff. I'm awaiting that before
I'd do anything major in this area.

The name 'RoLo' was thought out immediately and is with us in our hearts! ;-)

AFAIK, we have no code at all for it yet (I mean, apart from the ATA and
FAT32 code etc). We have talked a lot about it and I think we all agree that
we'd like it to be able to offer the user a selection of images to load,
including the original Archos firmware, the rockbox firmware, perhaps a game
pack or why not the "PDA image"...

It could then even offer loading of *unscrambled* firmwares too. Removing
that annoying step from the building process.
