There is a port in the snapshots to the TI C3x/C4x family of DSPs.  In testing
this and looking at the performance, it looked fine.  The application actually
used components from libchip without problem.  I do not have extensive
experience with DSP specific RTOSes (e.g. SPOX) so could not do a head to
head comparison.  Most of the problems we ran into were because gcc targetting
the C3x/4x is immature at this point.
