With respect, <grin>

Did you read any of the links? They have software
that supports "fake" parallelism on a single

The point is that conceptual approach simplifies
programming for some tasks.

This may (or may not) be interesting for
the Swiss Army Knife Card Carlos is designing
which has many i/o ports. Nanonote? Not so much.
