Keep in mind that the Intel clients have been hand-optimizied, and are
in assembler. If you have sufficient familiarity with the Alpha
processor that you could write a fast client (i.e., in assembly, and
optimized to take advantages of the chip's features), we'd love to
hear about it.
The Alpha (and other 64-bit processors) have an especially interesting
ability, in taking a different approach altogether from the 32-bit
processors, which could yield significant speed increases. Biham
