I also moved the MSP430 development to the more widely available (and cheaper!) ez430RF module (MSP430F2274 based).
Unoptimized, the VM/interpreter is 6.6KB and the RAM footprint is 844 bytes (essentially leaving room for 90 one cell variables on the MSP430F2274). I made the dictionary 4092 words (~8KB) to leave room for C app code. The uForth dictionary is (by architecture) limited to 32KB.
