Right, ideally the host os will handle file i/o so any path the host
understands rockbox shold support... the problem is all the hardcoded
paths in rockbox... I guess a possible sollution is to fix the
ROCKBOX_DIR #define to something that RaaA checks for before opening
files and redirect as required, all other filenames should just work
(i.e /music will literally load /music on the host.)..
