    There are some design decisions Arduino made that maybe restrict in one aspect, but there's nothing wrong with dropping down to a lower level or jumping sideways to a slightly customized version that does just the right thing. e.g. If digitalWrite() isn't fast enough, somebody wrote a digitalWriteFast() that works with some AVRs. Otherwise, you can probably just hunt down the source yourself, make your own copy of it, and change it to be the way you need. That's a great way to learn, too
