I'll need a while to sort out my thoughts about this. On the whole I 
like having the ability to do this, but I'm worried about the fragility 
it introduces in passes after shrink-wrapping. Ideally we'd need an ix86 
implementation for test coverage reasons.

Is the usage of the word "concern" here standard for this kind of thing? 
It seems odd somehow but maybe that's just me.
