More code to read? Have you read the code of a standard libc? Not to mention
the SDK deps? Moreover, this "mini-lib", as you said it, is actually compiled
as 1 code unit with the application code (on a pi3 for the aarch64 port in a
few secs, max optimization, lol). Hardware portability code is really thin, and
linux devs are smoothing that out (it's a WIP).

I personally use it on x86_64 (my station) and aarch64 (pi3).

Your question feels a bit like the following one : what's the point of suckless?

In the end, if this does not fit your definition of suckless, don't bother and
just look away, don't be offended, I do not expect less.

Btw, I have also the receiving part but the code is quite older: I just did a bit of refactoring
for the "1 compilation unit" suff and some updating (I personally use it on
aarch64). As I did explain, gogol did a fine job at pushing me coding all that.
