I'm just an observer whose only real interest is in seeing to it that
dropping of any legacy support is not done casually. I can only wonder if
anyone using a 12 year old legacy chip has any interest in "performance"
beyond just working at all. Surely best possible performance is a worthy
goal, but does anyone running antique S3 expect anything more than adequately
