IRLP on Raspberry Pi

Dave Cameron, the main honcho of IRLP is working on an IRLP implementation 
using the Raspberry Pi instead of a traditional PC box.  He has the IRLP 
hardware board interfaced to the Pi GPIO connector, and is making great 
progress.  Talk about a lower-cost, lower-powered IRLP node if he gets it 
all working.  I'm still a little concerned about the Pi's power issues, but 
that may be resolved with the newer Linux distros.  I'd be glad to see this, 
as I have a spare Pi and would not mind replacing my wasteful IRLP computer 
with the tiny Pi.

He is also working at moving regular IRLP nodes from Centos to Debian.
