I also appreciate the concise code of NOVA. Comparing the two codebases, Fiasco.OC+L4Re seems a bit convoluted (which I believe is as a result of many people working on the code lots of exprimentation and design changes over the years).

Do you think the NOVA API would fit well on the ARM architecture?

I see you aleady have the base-hw platform for ARM. I don't think doing it at this point would be feasible, but if the situation was different now, do you think it would make sense to port NOVA to ARM for your ARM support rather than creating base-hw?
