I think lists consisting only of icons are very much overrated. They're
only useful for very few types of lists. Even in the big mobile OSes,
the vast majority of lists is text based (on Android, it's basically
only the application launcher list that is icon only, isn't it? And even
that one has a text under the icons). I wouldn't put too much weight
into it.

Touch-aware cabbiev2 shouldn't be a big issue, I did the 480x800 port
rather quickly actually.

I think RaaA could justify 4.0 because it means that Rockbox stepped up
from a firmware replacement to a general music application suite (of
course, without losing the firmware replacement part). That's quite a
big step for the entire project, isn't it?

That remains unanswered.

Best regards.
