It is off topic, but the stuff we do for embedded is applicable there. 
I suppose it could end up as a subproject.

I agree with this.  I'm not sure if it would be better to maintain our
own baselayout-lite, or if it would be better to try to make an option
for the current baselayout to make a tiny install.  My instincts tell me
