Looks great! We've been needing this for a while now.

Perhaps it should be two BMP2RB variables, one for the main LCD and one
for the remote?

BTW, I don't see the need for the #ifdef in misc.c for the
rockboxmonologo. Why isn't rockboxlogo in the native monochrome format

This could probably be solved by using two BMP2RB variables in the
config script.

I like it!
