Of course cue sheet processing is possible, and it is even easy and
short to program it simply (I mean with a small enough for Rockbox
routine). What worries me is that, if the poor little box has to read
100 MB of file on a laptop disk to find the start of a title, first you
might still have a gap in the sound if it is not ready in time, and
second you might not like the effect on your battery autonomy. With the
cue sheets I know I do not see a mean to directly access the right disk
block which contains the start of a title, which would be the ideal
implementation. On a desktop, with today's GHz processors and huge
memory disk caches this process seems to be almost instantaneous, but
this is only a human impression.

On the other hand I confirm that it is possible to create tracks which
chain together seamlessly, but you have to take care of that, i.e. it is
not the current default way to create them.
