If you read the second article, it is about how to achieve gapless
playback _without_ the --gapless/--nogap option. In the first article he
uses the nogap/gapless option, but claims that there are few players
that can remove the LAME/VBR header before decoding the stream, hence
producing silence between the tracks. Rockbox removes the VBR/LAME
headers correctly, so that is not an issue.

Someone may do this one day. Until then, I suggest you give the --nogap
option a try.
