It's a wonderful idea. It may represent a good way for people to program for 
the RAM-less ATTiny15L, which is an excellent little chip with a fast PWM 
output (great for miscellaneous power supply and DDS (direct digital 
synthesis) applications).

I've long been a believer in using appropriate languages for a given 
application, and C has some assumptions and limitations that don't make it a 
great fit for really small processors or for quick, one-off projects done by
