What about implementing a semi-dynamic buffer system (no malloc()
though, as I understand rb doesn't have this available)?
Admittedly I don't do dev work on Rockbox (so take my ideas with a very
big grain of salt), but wouldn't allowing each plugin to specify how
much buffer it needs help this? Then you could run as many plugins
simultaneously as you had room for in ram... and if you try to start one
when there isn't enough ram left, present a menu of running plugins and
ask which one to kill.
