Plays a click when browsing in filebrowser & options, and longer tones of different pitch when entering or leaving menus. If you only want the piezo to click, use BEEP_ONLY_CLICK compilation option. The only thing not working yet is a sound when leaving the browse plugin or the browse themes menus.

The support is hardcoded for the moment, I would appreciate the help of an experienced developper for including runtime enabling/disabling support and integrating this in the General Settings. This patch was built against cvs-20061231.

The core code is from Loader2 by slowcoder from iPodLinux, I just inserted it in Rockbox. It should run on any iPod 4g and more recent, although I only could test it on my 5.5 30g.

Comments, improvements etc. are very welcome.

Happy new year to everyone!

Would it be possible for someone to resynchronize this patch with current svn? It greatly simplifies navigation (especially when using speech) and is generally quite useful. It seems that the updated menu system, the new settings using a .cfg instead of the hidden sector, and some other code changes have disabled it.
