I had ARM platforms in mind, too. Unfortunately we don't have any ARM
platforms for testing and performance measurement. Even Trent's
Snakebite doesn't have ARM boxes. I've a first generation Raspberry Pi,
that's all.

Perhaps somebody (PSF ?) is willing to donate a couple of ARM boards to
Snakebite. I'm thinking of Raspberry Pi (ARMv6), Pandaboard (ARMv7
Cortex-A9) and similar.
