why can't you just move System into Settings? Ok, credits are not a
setting, as well as Rockbox info isn't. But look at this from a users
point of view: meaningful menu item names are for remembering where to
look for something. If you're searching for settings, you will find them
quickly because the menu item is called Settings.

But who searches for Credits? Nobody. And who searches for Rockbox info?
The only info which is relevant to a user is battery level and amount of
space used on disk. The battery level is shown in the statusbar and in
most WPS's, so I woudln't worry about that. And since most people do
massive data moving with their PC, i wouldn't consider disk space used
to be problematic.

My proposal: Move System into Settings. The name inconsistency is
negligible, as names are for remembering where to find certain things,
but nobody needs to find System. I'm quite certain that not a single
user will complain about that move. The only problem I see is, that some
developers can't stand inconsistencies.
