Hi Doug,

absolutely. RaspberryPi is apparently approaching its availability ...

As far as I can see, it won't be very easy to boot A2, it might be 
possible to put a tiny Linux kernel together, which just chainloads
to A2, but I'm not sure if this is feasible.

I found just some detailed info about preparing & booting Linux here:

It also appears to me that RaspberryPI contains a bunch of closed 
source stuff, so it might get really difficult. The GPU loads some 
image (based on closed source) and then goes on and loads the Linux 
kernel. Also the whole interface to Jazelle (JVM in silicon) is
closed source.
