Why not using it for > main stream purpose if it works for all purposes? Are there any My feeling was just that: 1. We already have "optimized asm" for a few archs, and I didn't see a strong argument for removing it. 2. There's a chance to mess up odd arch-specific requirements, alignment, etc. in the new asm fragment unless it undergoes some careful review. However I do also agree with you, and think simplicity/consistency possibly override reason #1 above, and #2 could easily be handled if some time is put into review and testing of the new code. Anyone else have opinions on the matter? Rich
