You don't have to bring that, if some functionality can be modified
using configure/make commands, there's no one who can complain,
upstream made it possible, so it is obviously also in their intent to
let people build it with features they need. If a user needs it, but
not the majority of users, well, we have abs, not much of a deal to do
a modified rebuild for what one needs.

Though I'm a bit confused, I myself own a PSP (old FAT/1000 model) and
UMDs are the "caged" hardware disks, an ebook reader for this? Sure
they don't mean another format for document files?
