Staapl niche?

Looks like I found the niche: low-memory microcontrollers and
programmable hardware.

Forth is really good for writing compact procedural code while
retaining good local properties that allow reasoning about a program.
It gives a lot of bang for the buck concerning RAM usage.

If I look at what I've been doing with Staapl (and what I've been
enjoying the most) is to find a good balance between extremely
resource-efficient programs and readable, maintainable programs.
