I think getting at least one of our targets supported in QEMU would
both be an interesting project and useful to Rockbox. While the UI
simulator is useful to UI testing it doesn't help so much with codec
crashes and performance profiling. Obviously I'm not as up to speed on
the various real device debugging techniques but I think it could be
helpful.

Also someone has mentioned before getting a rockbox GDB client for the
iPod over USB serial?
