A 400 MHz ARM is not 4 times faster than a 100 MHz 68060. If it's a 400 MHz ARM7 it's about the same speed as the 060. Optimization is still needed.

@PurpleMelbourne

Coldfire encodings conflict with existing 68060 instructions. 68080 is a pretty good idea but Coldfire is a bad idea all around. That's why Coldfire is so cheap.
