They are there for people to test and get a feeling for it, just as you

We are working on loadable modules. But don't expect any miracles. You
will probably not notice any battery life difference at all if we
remove, let's say, 100K of the binary image.

No resampling. Rockbox uses the S/PDIF clock. I don't think the MAS can
resample even if we wanted to...
