There's no 'easy way', no. And yes, to port or write a codec for Rockbox
you would need to understand how the Rockbox codec system works - and also
either how the .tzx file works, or how the iPod linux codec works -- but
take a look at the source code for a "simple" codec in Rockbox (e.g. wav?)
and it shouldn't be too hard.
