I didn't realize this... I just installed ifuse and after a little tweak and a 
bugreport, I see all the files on my iphone (3G)... wow, this is awesome!

(btw did you know that C-32 would make what I just did illegal? I just shared 
with you how to circumvent a digital lock.)

Nope, no work at all. install ifuse, tell Amarok (or gpod, or your app of

directory (iPod_Control) to iTunes_Control, but a softlink fixes that right up.
