The site lists  "32-bit MIPS M4K® Core"

I have a PIC32MX795, though I don't use it (it is an alternate chip for the
16-bit dspic development board that i have.

I think full Object Pascal HLL will quickly exhaust the 128kb memory. (and
in practical cases less, since then some of it will be allocated as DMA
buffers by e.g. the ethernet engine)

So one would really need a cut down RTL for this.
