I agree on both counts.

This is an awesome enhancement, and I am very appreciative of ds2lists
efforts. (For that matter, the same goes for the entire RockBox project
and all those involved.) But mp3-izing the menus and the directories when
the cursor falls on them would turn this into a Major Killer Feature.

Just wondering, can an i-Pod do any of this? Talking menus and direcory
navigation, I mean.

Again, thanks to all who have contributed to this wonderful project.
