[PD] PD on a DSP?

Has anyone had experience running PD using a dedicated DSP? I'm going
to be starting an embedded PD-based project and my plan has been to
use PDa on an ARM, but I'm wondering if I might be able to get more
speed by offloading some of the maths to a DSP.

If I used a floating-point DSP could I port mainline PD? I guess that
PDa has to emulate the floating point for the message passing, which I
suppose wouldn't be well-suited to a DSP anyways.

Anyways, I'm just rambling...
