Hello everyone,

I allowed myself to add Zolertia Z1 to the list of future hardware 
platforms in RIOT wiki, since I am now actively working on porting RIOT 
on this device.

This little thing is described here: http://zolertia.com/products/z1

To summarize, it's--from an architectural point of view--the infamous 
TelosB on steroids: same CC2420 radio transceiver, a MSP430 MCU (but 
more powerful, F2617 instead of TelosB F1611), accelerometer, temp 
sensor, and USB port built-in, and an optional JTAG port that *do* 
follow the 14-pin standard of TI's debugger (instead of the f****d up 
set of holes that you have on TelosB).

It's already used in production (i.e.: industrially) on other, 
less-than-optimal OSes. I think it's time to ease the pain of the poor 
souls that use these systems, and offer them the ability to use the best 
OS of the moment. ;)

Hopefully, that should be done quite soon now.
