so, that, chris, is an entirely new and innovative design of vectorisation,
which is best described as a "hardware for-loop".
the PC *pauses* whilst a loop counter generates *multiple* instructions,
using the one at the current PC as a template, increasing the register
numbers by one each time round the loop.
no more extending and duplicating ISAs with vector and vector-scalar
no more SIMD madness.
just *scalar* instructions... in a loop.
