Yes, I was being cheeky.

step 1) the playback engine is made into a library - being worked on in gsoc
step 2) a *entirely brand new* java UI is built around librockbox/warble
step 3) ???

Step 3 is a big one; there's a lot of Rockbox that's not playback code but
which is a good reason to prefer using it over other Android players (e.g.
database, voicing, quickscreen).

Plus if we end up with 2 seperate UIs, then that's potentially twice the
work to add new features etc.

Could the seperation be "per-widget", with theming/viewports used to glue it
all nicely?
