Yes, that would probably be the best way to go, join the projects.
After all, the Archos Player and Recorder are certainly much more different
to each other than the Neo, and we still maintain one code base for them.

This shows we're "innovating away" from them. Unless more Neo developers
join there, OpenNeo will always be the ugly little brother of Rockbox. Again,
