I had no idea!

I don't see how this is related to my changes.

I'm not sure it helps much either since when people upgrade they very often
wipe their .rockbox dir and thus they'd wipe their "default.wps" file too...

I'd rather see us take the plunge to use a .cfg file correctly for settings as
they will be MUCH more resistant to upgrades than the config sector we use
today and that is a more complete take on problems like this.

I don't think they should be loaded at once automatically. IMHO, they should
remain independent. And .rwps files will load BMP images the exact same way as
.wps does (and since they use different extensions they can in fact use the
same directory for images)
