You claim to care about it. Rather than breaking screens so that things
are, literally, unusable, why not take fixing the grid mode into your
own hands since you seem to feel it's vitally important absolute mode be
enabled ASAP? I wouldn't think it's too much a stretch to say "if you
want to get this mode enabled, ensure it won't take parts of Rockbox
away from users."

Even if absolute mode can't be tested in the sim (something I'm not
convinced of), an improved grid mode certainly can.
