i made a crude attempt to make a testplugin for rbutil, which embeddes python with PyQt.
The idea is, to use such a technic to allow the devs of Rockbox Center to extend rbutil with their new ideas in python plugins.

This patch is very hacky, and only an attempt to prove that it is posssible.

To compile it, you need Python and PyQt. Adjust the paths in rbutil/rbutilqt/plugins/ to point to your Python installation. Also make sure you have the exact same Qt version for rbutil as the version used by your copy if PyQt.
Then just build rbutil normally, and do a "qmake && make" in the plugins dir.
This task depends upon

Little improvement for the patch.
Exports the settings object to the Plugin, and exports one function of the settings object to Python. (current mountpoint)

New version.
It now executes a file in the same dir as the plugin .so/.dll is.
This is very good for testing and fiddeling with the Python part. :-)
There is a example python file in the plugins dir.

I also extracted the rbsettings to python binding into a extra file. So it can easily reused by other python plugins.
And i added a few more rbsettings functions to python.

add missing header
