This library might have a nice API, but the code that's inside is far
from being 'mature'. It's x86 ASM and C spaghetti, highly unportable,
and 100% broken on anything but x86. Some of the optimized functions
don't even have a C equivalent, IIRC.

For two years, I try every now and then to make the code from
heroinewarrior work on PPC. Either it doesn't compile, or it is broken.

You know what to expect now.
