Is any Rockbox source-code useful for CHDK?

I was just checking out the Rockbox project, a CHDK-like program for MP3 players, and couldn't help but notice that they already have lots of features that have been requested for CHDK cameras. Things like:

A text editor with mini keyboard, you can even define your own keyboard layout with a simple txt file.
JPG viewer so you can view any JPG file you put on your player or cards. You can zoom-in on them and scroll around.
Chess, cards, and other games.
A more colorful menu system with colored icons.
Customizable themes for all menus and displays.
A more extensive context editor for any folder or file, rename, properties, etc.

And much more.

Since their whole project is open-source and all the code freely available, could some of its bits and pieces be used to add in some often requested features for CHDK?

this is interesting, especially the keyboard stuff. i can imagine it will be very difficult porting parts of the code though, so it might be easier to write stuff from scratch. maybe can be used though :)
p.s.: i think Dataghost has a lot of experience in ipod hacking afaik, maybe he has some thoughts on this
