Q54: Okay, I understand your 400 file limit. But why hardcode? Why not
have this be dynamically allocated?
-A54: Because it's useless. Dynamic memory is only ever useful if you have
- memory consumers (tasks) that run at different points in time, and thus
- can reuse the same memory for different purposes.
-
- We don't have that. We must be able to show a big dir, index a big
- playlist and play a big mp3 file, all at the same time. They cannot use
- the same memory, and thus dynamic memory buys us nothing but extra
- complexity. If we used dynamic memory for this, we would get all kinds
- of odd bugs. Playlists that only got half-loaded if placed in certain
- directories. Parts of the disk you couldn't go to if playing a certain
- playlist etc.
-
- We have a number of tasks that consume memory. They can all run at the
- same time, using all of their allotted memory. Therefore it is much better
- to allocate that memory to them beforehand and not pretend that anyone
- else is able to use it. This is standard practice in memory-limited
- systems.

Q55: Why is there a 10,000 song limit on playlists?
-A55: This is another hardcoded limit. We feel that as bigger disks arrive
- that this limit will increase. Because of the way that playlists are
- stored, it tends to be a bit more malleable than the directory file limit.
- For further detail, look at questions 53 and 54 and replace any instances
- of '400' with '10,000'.

Q56: You don't understand! I _really_ need to have more then 400 files
in a directory!
-A56: The use of really big directories was a workaround for the poor playlist
- capabilities of the original Archos firmware. With Rockbox, you no longer
- need this workaround. Organize your files in directories, then build
- playlists for all collections you want to shuffle-play.

Q57: How can I make playlists on my PC?
A57: There are many programs that can create .m3u playlists. WinAmp is one.
