Of course one would have to have Rockbox firmware (or at least Bootbox)
flashed and it would need ntfs-support right out of the flash rom. But
that is too hypothetical to ever happen.
The NTFS documentation is really bad - see the Linux NTFS efforts: It
was easier to wrap around Microsoft Kernel drivers to get NTFS running
(Captive NTFS) than to implement from scratch (Linux NTFS kernel driver)...
