Subject: Skin engine being completely rewritten.. really needs testers!

Skin engine being completely rewritten.. really needs testers!

Some of you may have noticed the skin system changed in 3.6 which
broke all themes, the reason for doing that was to get a cleaner skin
engine into the code. So for the last while I've been working on the
display code and the parse code comes from the theme editor GSoC
program.

The patch is at http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/11470 .

Anyway it isnt quite finished but it is at the point where lots of
testing is needed. I'm hoping to get this in before 3.7 which is about
6 weeks, but that depends on how much help I get testing it (If it get
heaps of testing and lots of bugs it wont go in untill it is ready.)

So, if you can build your own build please try out the patch and let
me know in the tracker any bugs you find. If you cant build your own
then reply here and I'll do a build for you.

My goal is to have it committed in the next 2 weeks which gives a
month before 3.7 to do any bug fixes which don't get caught in
testing.
