Or, simply let RB include a standard MP3 clip, which would be played when RB
first is installed. Actually, two mp3-clips would have been the perfect:
1. RockBox is ready
2. Shutting down RockBox.
For example. They could have been named STARTUP.mp3 and SHUTDOWN.mp3, or the
like, and be located somewhere on the unit under the RB folder.
