I posted a patch I'm thinking to commit and it is the one without
context menu.

I wanted to show entire path of file names. From my experience, path
tends to not contain spaces and splashf() doesn't handle such strings well.
But since the printf() isn't still good especially for smaller LCDs, I
can change it to use splashf().

User can select which file to be removed and settings are set to "Ask"
for icons by default. I hope it reduce the problem.

For the purpose of rockbox-fonts.config, see the comment at and next one.
In such a case, users would change setting to not remove fonts at all.

It doesn't. It removes the .cfg file only if the file is in the
/.rockbox/themes directory though.
