I have done a quick browse of the source code. The following list are
the clues which may relate with vectorization:

- Drill source use Arrays.fill, Arrays.copyOf and Arrays.copyOfRange.
- Project in exec/vector folder uses hppc. And hppc use Arrays.copyOf
  and Arrays.fill.

[2] shows that Arrays.fill, Arrays.copyOf and Arrays.copyOfRange are intrinsic
methods. [3] shows that such intrinsics can be optimized by the JVM to
use SIMD methods.

Is my understanding correct?
