It may be shit sometimes, but this shit still runs faster than what compilers produce

I can write asm faster than many people write C (or java, or anything else).

Yes. When i change the algorithm itself, you can expect even bigger gains (i got a routine 14x faster in my heroes2 port, in the editor).

As an example, take my picture viewer (aga only). You will never ever find a compiler that can just approach its speed. Actually it might even beat x86-compiled native code on the same machine when ran under winuae's jit.
