I may just compile some that way when
I'm finished. It's not like I have to edit
my code to switch platforms. :-)

On my current hardware, I don't notice
much of a performance issue, but that
may change when I switch to some older,
celeron systems and it will be handy to
eliminate that performance problem and
(maybe??) the need for the JVM as well.
