 Hmm, why would anyone need to have asm snippets in a document processing 
suite?  And it looks like the bits are ABI-dependent, so at least three 
variations (if the changes are endianness-safe) would be required to 
handle all the ABIs that we support.

 It smells like OpenOffice is doing something outrageously wrong here...
