It certainly can. I've got a Buffalo router here that runs a
stripped-down version of Linux and has Python installed on it. No
need for the PSF to get involved because people are already creating
these without them. I know that a lot of folks use an old router and
put OpenWRT, DD-WRT, or Tomato firmware on them. This would give you
a Linux platform on which you can install Python, usually telnet (or
more likely, SSH) support, and can be integrated with a number of
You could even grab a Raspberry Pi (model B with ethernet), add a USB
ethernet adaptor, and you'd have a pretty nice machine with 512MB of
RAM (the router platforms don't usually have more than ~64MB of RAM),
two ethernet ports for routing, and would support SD or USB drives.
