I'm not that kind of reverse engineer (not at all) to go for and eat
that binary over there. I just thought if there is already a project
somewhere idling around that collected some information, it might turn
out that another port is quickly done.
m3po's are sold for less that 100 euro on ebay at the moment, and I
think with rockbox, it would be a very nice, powerful device for home
stereo equipment. (cheaper than one of these nice Mac mini's)
Some people have even been successfully adding some kind of
usb-support and so on.

rock On, manuel
