I'm very interested in this, more specifically when ARM support is such 
that porting the vibe.d library to Android/ARM or Linux/ARM in general 
would allow lightweight micro serial-port servers like the BeagleBone to 
be operated on with WebSockets. This would definitely make robotics more 
simple. I know it would be interesting for me, I'd use it to build a 
simple, mini RC airplane equipped with a GoPro! camera that works over 
LTE. Oh the fun I'd have :) Keep it up
