Contiki has uIP and RIME, TinyOS has BLIP if I remember correctly. We have
ccn-lite, OpenWSN, and this one. I think we cannot compare to Linux, BSD, and
the like here. They can afford to make different modules somehow interoperable
at cost of memory, we cannot.

Won't repeat the arguments for naming.
