I don't see Rockbox Utility as in place here. All affected targets (at
least to the best of my knowledge) have their own packaging system,
and putting Rockbox Utility on top of that doesn't make sense to me.
The only sensible way would be to make plugins support dynamic
resizing as well. Obviously that would be quite a lot of work ... on
the other hand, what plugins do we want to support on those platforms
at all? I don't see much plugins to be useful -- you can get tools and
games as native apps for the host.
