Like I said, I don't know.  Others have pointed out man pages that say it's
highly machine dependent and should be avoided in cross-platform code.  On
the other hand we use it in a couple places in our core code, so it must
work well enough.  None of the other modules use it however.  It'd be
interesting to see benchmarks...
