I think decoding wideband shouldn't be a problem, even on a slow ARM7.
In the worst case, there are always some approximations possible (replacing
the long FIR filter by an IIR).

I've never measured that, but it shouldn't take too much space, especially
if you disable all the code (and possibly codebooks) that aren't used.

There's probably in the order of 5-15 lines of floating-point code left,
most (all?) of which outside of loops. Should work in real-time even with
