The incompabilities are all over the place, we would be basically restricted 
to a very basic instruction set and due to the floating point differences it 
wouldn't even be compatible with the current ABI. I'm not overly optimistic 
that a few optimized libraries would save us, e.g. scripting languages are 
already slow enough right now.
