yeah absolutely.  no only could the decoding of the function be
accelerated, so could its display.

well, unfortunately for the RISCV community because the RV Foundation has
acted so irresponsibly and negligently there may be an EU anti trust
investigation underway at some point, particularly as EU Horizon 2020 Grant
money has been wasted by the RV Foundation systematically refusing to
respond to our in good faith requests to be involved in innovation in a
transparent fashion.

so we will press ahead with a POWER graphics ISA.

Hugh, the Director of OPF is looking for the right people for us to talk to
so that we can do the first step of proposing a "namespace" extension
opcode for POWER ISA.
