One downside to a four charcter extension is that it increases the chance the full file name may have to be scrolled or clipped on the Archos display.

On the other hand, .rock is more descriptive as less ugly than .rck

Since people seem to feel strongly about this, how about using either of .rock or .rck (or .rbp for "rockbox plugin"), and then we can go back to "traditional" religious wars, like "(emacs|vi) is better than (vi|emacs)" or "tabs vs. spaces" or "const vs. #DEFINE".

Archos FM has a Rockbox!
