For me it seems that there is not so much items in rockbox main menu
and so it is not very important to look for better arangement. Current
ordering is totally usable and i don't see rational reason why to
change it.
But if you decide to give the users a possibility to change the order,
then i will be probably one of those, who will change it, because i
have some frequently used items. My reordering will not be "logical",
no "grouped" items. I frequently listening the radio, using file
browser and resuming playback, so these items will be in most
accessible places.
Do you have a lot of requests from users about main menu reordering?
May be that i missed it, what is the reason to reorder the menu?
