That is seriously cool stuff!

Off the top of my head, I think a start would be to make the new "remote" simply send different events than the normal one. Events that signal more complex actions, such as "next dir (disc)".

As for the output parts, wps_refresh() could be modded to send data to the changer interface as well as draw on the LCD. In any case, this changer adaptor will require numerous modifications to the Rockbox code. Remember to #ifdef them properly!

Concerning special volume level, font and screen layout, all of this can be done by simply loading a .cfg file.
