Sorry, Dave. I really wasn't intending to speak on behalf of anyone, I
simply failed to be clear. Of course, that is how is happens: someone
who has a particular player takes an interest in getting Rockbox running
on it, and does the work. I have an interest in contributing to Rockbox
myself, and would volunteer; alas, I am not competent enough to get
actual sound running, since I don't have the math, and I don't have the
player, either.

But I guess I need to leave an answer up to someone who might be able to
do the job, I just thought I would save him the trouble of replying
himself, since that's what it boils down to: unlikely to happen.

Again, sorry if I stepped on someone's toes. I will hesitate before
answering such questions in the future.
