Those features would require a database of all the files that the unit
contains, like say the iPod, and may be extremely slow on an Archos
machine. Furthermore, Rockbox would need to access the HDD more often
and therefore shorten the battery life (autonomy). The 2Mb of ram that
the Archos units contain are not enough to afford a database-driven
system. Maybe Rockbox's port to another type of unit (say iPod or
iRiver) would make this possible, but right now the hardware is the
limit. Rockbox allready does incredible things with my FMR, but it
slowly tends to reach the hardware limits ;)
