Well I just understood this after hitting send button :)

I think we could introduce a CONFIG_DIR to store configs/high scores in
a separate directory. But then that would break compatibility with old
config / scores unless people move the files themselves (or with the
help of RockboxUtility?) when upgrading rockbox.

Or we could define CONFIG_DIR to ROCKBOX_DIR on target, and keep the
exact same hierarchy.

But then JdGordon suggestion of using a portable app (everything in one
user dir) also makes sense, myself I'd just postpone that issue for
later and focus on making rockbox running on android. (do I say that
because I want to run rockbox on my phone asap? :)
