Is there a sort of detente regarding patents, between the companies
that rely on them and those organisations who would rather not be
involved?

I imagine that Apple could expend a lot of legal effort matching up
their IP portfolio against projects like Rockbox; that effort could be
hard to justify from a commercial point of view.

Similarly Rockbox could pursue Apple's patent claiming prior art, but
if you recognise one patent, shouldn't you recognise them all? And
that's something that wouldn't be in the interests of Rockbox.

Just MHO
