Absolutely! I and some others use the AJR primarily as a recorder and it does NOT lend itself to having novices run it. What I've done as a hack is to call the recorder screen before calling the main file browser routine so that it starts up as a recorder, but if you cancel the recorder screen, you end up in the (normal) file browser screen. This works very well for my purposes (makes it a one-button start recorder), but I am a very small minority and this hack isn't something I figure the core Rockbox is going to find acceptable.

If the recorder function was an auto-start plug-in, it would be easier to make a specialized one button start recorder that would be useful to more people. I'm sure there are other specialized uses that would be much easier to implement cleanly with auto-start rocks.
