One more thing - this project as it currently exists is a proof of
concept of how a bare bones embedded system executable running on bare
metal can still have the same advanced debugging capabilities as when
using, e.g. Linux. If the debug info can be directly mapped, and thus
eliminate a dependency on a file system or on a special bootloader, it's
a great demo.

I think this use case is valid.
