Now that SNA is finally almost stable and really fast, revert
everything and go back to the dark age intel users had to live with
for so long? ;)
Seriously, every time when there were huge steps a lot of stuff
regressed (XAA/EXA/UXA/SNA) - and that happend quite often in the last
few years. I now if I am prepared for another round just yet...
