Staring at the winword file in this archive with strings this pretty much
looks like one of the dead tree copies I was using for my work, so it's
definately usable. The ARC / ARCS differences are not too big, just look
into arch/mips/arc/ which handles them. The differences between specs and
real world implementation is another thing - I haven't yet seen a single
implementation that conforms to the spec. Which is why I believe the
ARC spec should best be locked up in Fort Knox ;-)
