Nothing is standing in the way. Rockbox does what it can to play back
the tracks seamlessly. If you have some tracks that don't, please make
them available for us to download so we can examine them.

However, you must have encoded them in a way that the track boundaries
are seamless (the --nogap LAME option, for instance). If not, there will
still be glitches, since the tracks are "terminated" (the bit reservoir
is emptied).
