I feel inclined to agree, but in current market, the metaphor of zipper
would not be appropriate.

Choose and buy RTOS, say, VxWorks or LynxOS, RT linux or so.

C/C++ toolchain would be available without other costs.

Alas, Ada compiler would be *optional* with considerable additional cost.

Zipper cannot be optional :-)
