For embedded platforms there will always be occasions where some (time critical) applications will require specialised solutions. A while back seriously had to (ab)use the gcc for Atmel's AVR microcontrollers to be able to squeeeeze some code down to less than 30-something clock cycles. It would have been better to just do it directly in assembler... if you disregard the fact that my assembler experience is quite limited.

As for having to stick to C, well, for now that depends on whether OpenTV will make a C++ compiler for their API or not. Since their C compiler is based on gcc it should be possible to do a C++ compiler as well if you don't mind going into a friggin' horrible mess of legal entanglement :(

Have you ever looked at EVE Online? They use stackless Python for their backend. Not sure what they use for their frontend.
