I can dig that but I'm sure that a feature enhancement would be given
greater priority since it already exists?

Do you know there are 207 patches in there, some dating back to 2003?

No I did not know that. However, I think we can all agree that some of
those ideas will never become part of rockbox and will just sit there
getting older.

I saw what happened with the original bookmarking patch - started in
2002, finally included 2004.

This happens with a volunteer project but once it's done you are a
contributor with all the accompanying glory.

Life's too short.

That, we can surely see eye to eye on. Well, maybe not LOL!

Cheers...rocker

Hi Rocker

It would be nice to have the patches applied to the current CVS, but I
don't think I could take all the frustration of trying to get them
applied by the dev team and seeing then slowly rot away in the patch
tracker.

Do you know there are 207 patches in there, some dating back to 2003?

I saw what happened with the original bookmarking patch - started in
2002, finally included 2004.

Life's too short.
