There are two parts to the Arduino ecosystem.  One is low cost hardware.  The 
other is a software package that is easy for non-wizards to use.

I'd be very surprised if somebody hasn't figured out how to call subroutines 
coded in assembly language.  If so, you can use their hardware and their 
software environment and write your code like it was running on a bare 
machine as long as you add a wrapper to call it from their environment and 
start your code with a disable interrupts.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
