Basically the FM is a new model, and the people who have been involved in
the project for a while have the older models. They put some changes into
the code to support the FM, but this was done "blind" as they could not
test them! There are a few of us who have arrived on this list recently,
who have the FM model, and we have put a lot of effort into fixing the
problems on the FM, so that I think the FM works as well under Rockbox as
the two previous models.

There are other features to look at (radio, spdif etc) that are specific
to the FM, and who knows about those! Maybe someone can figure out how
they work and we can add support for them as well.

I think we have enough enthusiastic list members to make the status of the
FM "officially supported" the same as the earlier models, but that is not
my decision to make!
