I'll just add that things done "for fun" can benefit to more usefull
Video support is a good example. Even the author doesn't use it that often,
other do :) yet the researches done for this funtionnality (play mp3 from
memory iirc) were used in talking menus/Talkbox. I'm not blind either, yet
I'll use this function while driving as soon as the f******g slow repairing
service send my unit back. Even if this particular option is not used by
most people, I don't consider its developement a waste of resources.
