gain should not be wasted by tending to a small fraction of the installed base.
Small? Where's the data that says so? What does "small" mean? How do we know half the planet's user-base isn't pre-level2? How do we know the size of the fraction below level2 that has the means to get past level1 before avx9 and sse100 have reached the marketplace?
