That would be my preference as well, but it might not be as trivial as
it sounds. I need to discuss this further with the Mynewt developers,
because some of the abstractions (namely mbuf) might not be easy to
port. Once we choose a protocol, and if this ends up being NMP, I would
like to start those discussions ASAP with the contributions of the
Mynewt community.
I think we should go ahead and start the conversation with them, on
mailing lists.

Unfortunately, the Mynewt mailing lists add a Reply-to header, which
causes that list to "steal" replies that are cross posted. So, you if
you send to both the Zephyr and the Mynewt list, the replies will
randomly discard the Zephyr list, which tends to fork threads (randomly
because it depends on which mailing list server replies quicker, and
which message a given recipient's mail system decides to use, gmail
tends to use the first one, for example).

Feel free to help me apply pressure to get their list configuration
I've copied Sterling to see if he can do something about this before we start cross-list conversations.
