shame for the students to spend ages getting all the bits in place for
Haskell on the AVR, only to find out that their quicksort example program
runs out of memory with more than 4 elements.

Don't worry too much about that.


I don't disagree with you on any of your points - I just want to be sure
that Gaby knows what he is getting into here,

yes, don't worry about that :-)

  and that his time and effort is well spent.

Various people (including my family) have dramatically different
ideas about how my limited time should be spent :)

OK, I'll stop worrying and let you enjoy your project!

Whatever the results, I'm sure your work on C++ will be greatly appreciated. The avr-gcc project can greatly benefit from a C++ expert - the current maintainers have their workload overflowing already with plain C.
