In the long term I think, there shouldn't be any games and toys in the rockbox
binary, but rockbox should be able to load some overlays and boot other firmware
versions (including the original archos firmware). This would solve the space
problem completly, because we don't use presious RAM while playing music but
have plenty of space on the harddisc for all the toys like text reader, image
viewer, games, organizer etc.
