That would be great to have an assembler optimised version for the
Sparc. I will be leaving my University for the summer but the Sparc
systems that I have running will be accessible to me through the net so I
can keep them processing all summer. I am using some old Sparc IPX, Sparc
5's, Sparc 20, Sparc 1000 Server, and Sparc Ultras. If the deschall client
was assembler optimised like the Intel version, those machines would crack
out some serious key crunching.
