Well, *I* used it for a couple of times. The main reason was that I was
technically baffed that *grayscale* video playback is possible on a
simple b&w screen and how it's achieved.

So maybe your video playback was "just" a technical study how to get
grayscale working on the Jukebox, but then again it was some basic
research which is very useful for other developments.

And some basic research is exactly what we need for the WAV codec... :-)
Any volunteers?
