Well, modulo Rich's inimitable style ;-) I was going to say pretty much 
the same thing. Looks to me like this is a pretty thin wrapper around 
MMX/SSE that is supposed to make it look a little less intimidating.

Quoting from the website:

"Quexal supports the Microsoft Visual C++, Borland C++ Builder and 
Borland Delphi compilers"

"Ordering Quexal is only 59$"

Hm... this is going to be really popular with the ffmpeg-devel crowd... ;-)
