While the improved performance of 5.4 is very welcome to everyone - I
do feel sad that there was a certain beauty in the minimalism of the
5.3 instruction set which is now lost. As always happens, performance
related changes introduce complexity (and in some ways ugliness) - as
I am only too aware because of the work in Ravi.

Can't be helped I suppose.
