IMHO a Pi is nit suitable to "ruggedize" a system. The Pi is made for 
education purpose not for embedded use. It's stability, EDS immunity,  
and temperature range is not suitable for this. If there is any security 
issue with this project you should choose another ARM Linux system. 
There are lots of them that offer better specifications for embedded 
use. Moreover Wifi is not usable for decent embedded application. it is 
very prone to be temporarily unavailable by environmental influence 
(such as microwave ovens and other Wifi routers nearby).

To me it is a very viable idea to use the well tested Delphi code and 
port the Project to fpc/Lazarus.
