I guess we need to be careful that the licensing of any code we take from
Arduino-land (including their boot loader and libraries) is compatible
with our aims. I think the boot loader is GPLv2. Not sure if that is true
for any library code we might include.

I think following a route that doesn't preclude a build that's free from
Arduino dependencies would be prudent. Making an Arduino build available
too will probably encourage experimentation, as you say, so both are
probably valid directions.
