Actually, I've done a benchmark with all the available optimisations,
and despite misidentifying my AMD 486-160 as a 6x86, the client has it
right... the 6x86 code is fastest on my machine. I imagine the code for
different processors works better with some cacheing architectures or
some such, and thus the "wrong" code is sometimes best.
