This may be true, but I'd like to see one anyway, as it reportedly produces 
clever code (one report claims the use of decimal mode in a bit operation 
for instance) and I would like to see one that implements all of the obscure 
illegal opcodes, so maybe it can find a practical use for some that nobody 
has thought of yet.
