Thanks for this, this actually proves that the skin engine is largely
unable to do it currently.

Except for the points you mentioned, if you tried it on a touchscreen
target (what this patch is all about) you would have realized that this
is completely broken (no kinetic scrolling, no scrollbar, no list title,
I even got it to crash).

That the line selector draws over the line and not only the text is a
significant portion of the patch which is needed in any event.

FWIW, even if the skin engine would be able to do it. This patch isn't
about theming. It makes Rockbox usable independantly of the current
theme (though, it doesn't prevent themes from overriding it).

Best regards.
