This is turning into a good old pissing contest, isn't it?

The MAS3507 chip is a DSP like any other with a lot of on-board ROM routines
meant to decode MP3 streams and to encode a raw sound stream into VBR MP3.
Nothing else. If you think you or anyone else can implement an OGG decoder
in 4,096 20-bit word instructions, go ahead. But the core developers on this
project won't spend a minute chasing this incredibly far-fetched dream, and
instead put all their combined efforts into making Rockbox work bug free.
Micronas aren't giving away any details on the MAS3507 core, so I doubt we
will ever get into contact with anyone working there, having access to the
right docs, willing to commit breach of propriety (sp?) against their

So there.

Enjoy your cold coffee.
