I have to side with those two options. Rockbox UI cleverly uses SDL which
covers many many platforms. Remember that Rockbox UI already runs on
motorola mobile phones which support SDL (running linux). SDL is aslo ported
to Windows CE which is a vast pool of future targets. It would be a shame to
use a less crossplatform-able framework.
