FS#10797 - backdrops can make plugins unusable

I give a example to make the problem clear. If you for example choose the theme AR-150 on fuze, the game boomshine is unplayable, because the theme has got a white backdrop, so you can’t see the control.

In the plugins calculator and calendar the backdrop can’t make the plugin unusable, but it often looks strange, if the backdrop is used to structure the main menu. (e.g. Azure Whisper)

What do you think about a inconspicuous background image for those plugins?

You should probably be asking this on the mailing list or IRC, as more people will respond there I think.

While looking at the lrcplayer flyspary plugin, I’ve noticed in the code, that some plugins disable backdrop, some are not. So it is not 100% bug, but more of architecture decision, if the rockbox should disable backdrop before calling a plugin, or the plugin should do it by itself.
