You can put the %s later and the next song info will scroll. The next song
feature is great, but at this stage it only shows information the last 10-15
secs of a song, it would be better if that was adjustable somewhere.

I've made it like this:

%?It<%sNext: %?It<%It|%s%Fn>|%s%?ig<genre: %ig %?iv<(tag:

- which 90 % of the times shows genre and tag info, and when next song info
is avaible shows next track name.

I would still like to have the track name taking up two lines in a nice font
for better readability, especially when driving and feeling the need to see
what song im listening to... but that's something completely different!

rock on, rockbox
