Open source 802.15.4 protocol stack and Arduino-compatible board

Tokyo-based wireless hacker Akiba of FreakLabs sends word of their latest project, the Freakduino-Chibi, an Arduinoid with open source 802.15.4 protocol stack and integrated radio. Akiba says:

The protocol stack uses approximately 3.6kB of flash and 270 bytes of RAM and makes it possible to use a bare radio for 802.15.4 communications rather than a module. There’s an accompanying board that I released which is Arduino-based with an integrated 802.15.4 radio. I also added a couple of options like a ruggedized enclosure and battery boost circuit. I designed the stack and the board to make it easy for people to set up wireless sensor networks or get started in embedded wireless communications.

    Does anyone knows if this stack would work with arduino nanos and nrf24l01+ radios?
