Does that really work well? I suppose the cpu and mem is ok, but how 
about the disk. How do you edit on such a device?

(Over the time lmtx became more efficient in terms on memory (access) 
and such. Compiling the luametatex manual on the RPI 4 (somewhat 
overclocked) takes 3 times when my laptop does which I consider okay, 
although the aim of course is less, which is hard because it then also 
runs faster on the laptop. Not that there's much to gain. The bottleneck 
is more at the lua end nowadays.)
