I would strongly object to this. Imho, for blind folks (as well as
folks using Rockbox while driving in a car), having static menus that
don't reorganise themselves (or at least are predictable) is much more
preferable and easier to navigate. It's also safer for the car driver
who doesn't need to pay so much attention either to talkbox or the
screen; he can work from memory. It also means that every time you grab
someone elses Rockboxed DAP to use for a moment, you don't have to spend
time to figure out where everything is.

Cheers,
Andrew.
