I think the main issues for porting something like lrzsz to ITRON will
be related to tty and file i/o.  The rest of the protocol principally
involves maintaining state and shoveling data around.  OTOH, zmodem
has been around for ages, it wouldn't suprise me if there are other
non-posix implementations that might be easier to force into ITRON.
