Raspberry Pi Prospects and/or Alternative

Funny you should say this. I've been building a GPIO driver for the
Raspberry Pi, as well as a generic dummy GPIO driver that plays back input
events from a list. (So it is possible to write and test programs that
require GPIO access without physical GPIO hardware present.)

I'm travelling for the next 7-10 days but will clean and contribute the
code after that.
