I wonder if it would be possible to flash the espruino firmware to the wipy board to actually make it useful.

No.

The pyboard uses an STM32F405
The Espruino Pico uses an STM32F401
The WiPy uses a TI3200

Most likely it's much less work for fix the time module of WiPy or to learn, how to use it.

Call me blockhead, but I would have assumed that the wipy-related stuff resides under https://github.com/wipy/wipy. There is nothing in the documentation that indicates that the source is under https://github.com/micropython/micropython. In fact, https://github.com/wipy/wipy seems to be somewhat active, at least, something was committed a bit more than a month ago.

As pythoncoder pointed out, the problem is not that that the code is broken, the problem is that the references are outdated, and thus, it is rather hard to figure out which code is in need of fixing...

Well, there is a binary for CC3000... http://www.espruino.com/binaries/

I think that's a binary for the espruino pico with an attached cc3000 (for WiFi supoport), much like there is one for micropython from the http://micropython.org/download/ in the section "Suitable for hand-made PYBv3 boards, with network drivers for CC3000 and WIZ820io included"

I am trying to decide if I should buy a Wipy or not.
Is the Timer feature usable (by looking at source code instead of documentation), or totally broken ?
(rendering the card indeed somewhat useless)

I wasn't able to make it generate a 50Hz PWM signal, which is what the servos need. It seems that you can generate higher frequency signal, which is fine for controlling motors and LEDs.
