I'd say being "inimitable" is a good thing in this case.

Yes, I tried it a bit now. Going thru the tutorial gave me a good idea 
of what mmx is all about. It's seems like a no-brainer to teach my 
little pet watermark to do some mmx tricks.

I'd recommend it to anyone interrested in trying out mmx/sse. The demo 
version is after all free.

The documentation is a bit thin, but as Michel wrote, it's easy to 
google the mnemonics after having a starting point.
