Then they can load the player language file :-)

Sleeping on this, I would say no. The two versions are compatible, we should
only load-protect things that are incompatible (and can make Rockbox crash).

But maybe it's wrong to have "new-player" in the file, maybe "new-short" is
better (?). Same thing anyway...
