    Support is always a vague term, it is not only about whether it works, but how solid/reliable it is, whether key software pieces have been optimized for it, etc.
    All that depends on having a large user community.
    Might be easier to do that with another SBC manufacturer. The Raspberry Pi Foundation for all of it's good aspects is essentially tied to Broadcom.

    Does anyone know if RISC-V has extensions planned for memory tagging or similar mechanism? I think I remember hearing about TIMBER-V but I can't find much information on it.
