My $0.02. Apollo Core instruction set might be really useful if (when?) the instruction set gets stable and we have applications (datatypes, etc.) utilizing AMMX and (possibly) SSE. But...

If I'm not mistaken, they are adding more registers to their m68k implementation. More registers = OS kernel has to handle them while task switching, or bad things will happen if more than one task tries to use them. Which means we would have to use their exec update - we have no guarantee it will work well without the rest of the Vampire emulated.
