Rest assured that I didn't even _think_ about that patch when writing
my concerns of a customizable quickscreen.

This sounds a bit like whining about it and I don't understand why you
are doing this at all. I do happen to agree with the (at least I
think) majority of devs that we don't want customizable menus /
buttons and was expressing my general concerns about a customizable
quickscreen. Others, as has shown, might disagree.

A project always needs to decide how it wants to progress, and if
there is a consensus to not want something then there is a consensus
unless re-discussed and agreed differently. You not working on Rockbox
due to a consensus made might be considered sad, but won't change
anything. Feel free to start a new discussion about customizable menus
/ buttons / whatever ...
