I figure this... but what about allowing a logo to be flashed to a
current rockbox image? Or would this be too difficult (i'm guessing when
we write to flash memory locations there is no easy way to find out
which of those locations contain the logo? Or can we say reserve a
portion of the flash memory just for the logo.... if this is the case
then this is trival... as long as the logo does not excede a memory
limit.
