You may consider running or supporting the smaller space consuming radio to radio type repeater, such as the ones using two GM300 radios or similar to create a small and lightweight repeater.
These seem to be popping up alot.
I'm not exactly sure if it'd be any different than a fullscale repeater. Maybe.
Just a thought I had,

Coldfire-based unit running a very lightweight RTOS.

cavities, with a common ham controller for comparison. It's been years
since I've touched a duplex repeater and I've never been the operator of
one. It's a field I've been reluctant to get into because of the
support requirements that are likely to come with it, but the ADS-SR1
already has 90% of the code written and debugged that it needs to be a
decent repeater controller, and the new unit will have more than enough
capability on the hardware side to do all of that and a lot of stuff
that I haven't seen so far in existing controllers, like IP linking.
