May i propose a more flexible system which opens the door to future
expansion and Zagor's wild dream (that is a compliment)?

Instead of autoexec.rock, have plugchain.rock which is called by rockbox
with a text file to describe the tasks it should perform.

This way you could run multiple plugins, select differing options if the
unit is "plugged", and also it could be called by, say, play_file for
volume-settings-per-file stuff ...load some settings, start the song, show
the picture.

Obviously, one of the calls to plugchain.rock would be during startup,
where main() would
load_rock("/autoexec.bat",0)
[autoexec.bat]
IF PLUGGED
   settings/car.cfg
   audio_3587 settings/car.vol
   car_head.rock "alpine"
ELSE
   ASK "left=home ... right=walkman" LEFT|RIGHT
     LEFT
       settings/home.cfg
       audio_3587 settings/home.vol
     RIGHT
       settings/walkman.cfg
       audio_3587 settings/car.vol
       FORCE_RESUME
   ENDASK
ENDIF

Well, you get the idea, and the concept could be quickly expanded to
include any event driven task you like :)

Good ideas?
