There are only two for x86 which have a free license, Fiasco and L4KA,
and both are in C++. The others are written in Assembler and have no
license we can use. For Alpha there is a free assembler impl, and for MIPS a
free C one. For StrongARM, L4KA is also available.

I don't know what API's are exported, though.
