I don't really speak for anyone on this but me (I'm even a core dev so it's
perfectly fine to just ignore me :) ). Originally I was just asking a
question about the downfalls in putting SIMD in an external library instead
of trying to put work it into the compiler's optimizer. A similar issue is
found in concurrency in where there seems to be no way to do it 'right'.
Someone must of just figured I had a strong argument for it... I really
don't, but if the language can provide type safety for assembly functions I
figure it would be more flexible than having
fixed built-in Auto-vectorization.
