We were of course considering PyPy for embedded systems,
different hardware platforms, and we certainly will
implement PyPy for different environments.

See section B.6.7.11 of the proposal:
"Embed in Specialized Hardware", page 69 of

I don't know if this will involve FPGA in the first
place. But this is anyway just the beginning.
By the end of this 2 year project, PyPy is either dead,
or everybody will rush at us and have us port
the software to whatsoever.
