My thought is that if the AMMX code is encapsulated into only device drivers like datatypes, enhanced Kickstart routines, AHI and a SAGA graphics driver for AROS, for example, user code will not need to be altered to benefit from the performance boost. The original MMX for the Pentium Pro was hardly ever used by user code since it required code to be rewritten in Assembly and disabled the FPU but users still benefited from improvements in DirectX, for example.
