How would Rockbox handle that last line, missing its final row of
pixels? Would it just crop it off and display what it could? If so,
The 13th line could still be used for the progress bar or something,
where the missing row of pixels would be of no concern. That was the
idea anyway.

Now, to try and create a usable 4 pixel font. :) 16 lines of
goodness, but I don't think it can be made readable, but might be a
fun exercise.
