I don't have anything against the early HMOVE tricks, I was just hoping
there was a way to do it that didn't depend on the platform.  Something
universal.  Then we don't think about it like a hardware bug or
something.  If it is universal then it is a reliable feature.  Know what
I mean?

If you can do this then fine.  I was just hoping for it to be a little
more simple.

BTW, sorry about the multiple post.  I guess if I post from my other
email address things get slowed down.
