Is that a usability superiority, or does it actually improve the audio
One thing that I'm sure lots of people would appreciate is a removal or
lessening of the silence gap between tracks on the default Apple firmware.

One little point is that using software like XPlay (still with the default
Apple iPod firmware) does allow the iPod music files to be accessed as a
regular USB device. You don't need iTunes, and you can still use the Apple
firmware, but you do need to buy XPlay. I know this is a bit off topic for
RockBox, but I thought that some blind people might be interested in knowing
that this XPlay solution does allow very good access to _any_ iPod from a
PC; much better access than with iTunes. It is not an iPod-accessibility
solution, more of an iTunes-accessibility solution.
