I will work on this.  What are the requirements again (characters).  I think 
I will leave the tweet or whatever it is called to you.  That is simply way

I have tested using the test suite, on 32 bit x86 builds (windows), non-sse, 
see2, and sse2i.  I have tested on Solaris, 64 and 32 both with and without 
OMP.  I think Solar has tested on linux-64.

Always good.
