Only for code that uses the FPU a lot, which REBOL usually does not. Other
than that there is virtually no difference in optimization goals between 020
and 060. The 060 scheduler in SAS/C makes no measurable difference (in our
tests). Pipelining is done automatically by the CPU, not by the C compiler.
