Would it be possible to make the UI a plug-in?

<sarcasm> That way everyone could be happy. </sarcasm>

But seriously, we could have the default UI and anyone who wants to write
their own UI can do so. Like, for example, a *.rock UI with my personally
desired UI feature, reading the ID Tag info when doing a directory
listing. I could turn that UI on when the Archos is pluged in and next to
the stereo (and no one cares about the power drain of reading the HD
constantly). I could return the Archos to the default UI when I am
running around and on batteries.

I was looking at the interface :

- are they plan to integrate this graphical sound menu we saw some time
ago in patch ?

- this patch included a remade key binding that was way more efficient
than the current one (basically f1 sound menu, f2 menu, f3 wps, on
browser, off stop). This was really interesting idea, we could keep
quick screen on f1,f2,f3. they would appear after a longer press on the

- exiting the menu is really boring as we have to press several time on
f1 or left to exit. Why can't we exit the menu while pressing ONCE on ON

The basic idea is that we have enought keys to make thing simple, so why
should we keep them so complex ;)
