That is correct. I have little experience with SIMD on x86, and none on other
platforms. I'm not in a good position to do a portable and useful design. I was
mainly interested in providing a very low level method for a more useful design
that could be layered over it.

I'm going to leave that up to those who are doing non-x86 platforms for now.
