You address very sophisticated requirements.  I'll guess that at least 
99% of the embedded system building population needs relatively tiny 
computing power.

At the end of the 2014 "Reviving ..." lecture, Prof. WIrth mentioned
security.  A serious concern for any network connected system. A 
remote third party messing with an assembly robot or a radiological 
endoscopy system could be bad news.  From Prof. Wirth's reply in the 
lecture I have the impression that a FPGA system can be built with 
certainty of no back door; I might be imagining too much.  According 
to articles I've read, a contemporary PC probably has a back door.
