I would be interested in a M4 version of a Trinket

I'm speaking with no inside knowledge, but I think it would be unlikely since the SAMD51 does not (based on checking both the SAMD21 and 51 datasheets) come in as small a version: the SAMD21 E model used in the Trinket has 32 pins, the smallest SAMD51 is the G with 48 pins. There most likely isn't room in the Trinket footprint.

That said, if anyone could make it work, it's LadyAda.

The real advantage of such a thing would be the increase in memory which would enable larger CircuitPython programs.
