Yes. That is what I was trying to say. IMO, the iriver firmware had some
"superior ideas", (even though in the most part it is obviously less
superior too rockbox), and that these should be considered. I was *not*
suggesting, however, that *everyone* will have the same opinion of what is
superior: am I right in thinking that you would prefer rockbox to adopt
"the one single most superior solution" for every aspect, and not cater to
users whose opinion might differ over what is, actually, superior or not?
