Re: [ccp4bb]: Some naive questions about AltiVec

I am as of this minute lurking here, hopefully to answer a few
questions about AltiVec, PowerPC numerics, and optimization on MacOS X.
As a bit of an introduction, my background is in synthetic/medicinal
organic chemistry with some small bit of dabbling in computer modeling.
I now work at Apple writing parts of vecLib and optimizing various
parts of the OS.
If there is someone here interested in actually opening up ccp4bb to do
some optimization, I will be happy to consult within the limits of my
available free time. I think it would be pretty cool if ccp4bb ran
speedily on a powerbook.
