True.  But these after all are extensions and extensions have been
notoriously under-documented through the years.

True.  But I'd say for this case it means it just hasn't been high enough on
anyone's priority list to get resolved.   I wouldn't be at all surprised if
Richard filed this bug to ensure that it didn't get lost. That's standard
development procedure for items we notice, but aren't actively working on.

It's unfortunate that Andrew muddied the waters.  Andrew's conclusions,
particularly in c#6 are simply wrong.

Sorry about that.  I have since changed my views on this matter to say
old-style asm should clobber memory.  I should have written this
sooner but I have been busy with other things.
I certainly understand being busy with other things. Thanks for chiming in and clarifying your current thoughts.
