Hello Craig,
your Idea is really great and i like it !
demo you provided seems to work so far on jbrec - but i didn`t take a very
close look (will do later)

this brings me to another idea.
I like all that "eyecandy" and customization stuff - so I made a custom
rockbox-logo a while ago.
disadvantage is, that it`s just being displayed when switching on rockbox.
too few kudos for so much work :D

so - it came to my mind, why not combine wps with some graphics elements ?
Think of a custom graphics "skin" which contains some file info (being
printed on top of the
graphics). Think of the millions of winamp skins....this is a reason why
winamp is a success !

the "alternating" display would be useful here - think of switching between
a logo-display
which contains none or just marginal song information and a more detailed
Maybe wps could contain custom bitmap elements?

I also was thinking of something like a "screensaver" in rockbox - best way
for implementation
could be whithin the WPS stuff (especially if there is an "alternating"
feature inside)

what do others think ?
