Thanks for pointing this out, I didn't know that one yet.

Sure it can - but is it worth time?

One possibility beeing worth the effort might be some sort of "micro OS"
for use on embedded computers with ARM or AVR cpu. This would require
writing a small RTL but the overall work is a lot smaller than writing a
full OS.

But if one needs a TCP stack or display driver or sth. like that the
point has come where linking in foreign code starts and the purity of
object pascal is gone.
