Thanks James.  Am I getting the wrong impression that the faster varieties 
of the arduino were ARM based?  Some of those (ARM stuff) are being offered 
at 400mhz clock rates.  Being on the lkml list, I see an awful lot of 
patches to make ARM builds work like the x86 stuff does.

Cheers, Gene

I don't think we reached consensus on that.  We're still backtracking...
