I'll be the lone dissenting voice and state that this thing looks like
a rather interesting tool.

So get to work on a free version.

SIMD code is a different beast than normal ASM. I think this tool has
its place. Perhaps another idea would be a tool that enables the user to
describe some kind of general algorithm with a set of SIMD-like
primitives. Then the tool decides what the equivalent code would look
like using different SIMD sets (MMX, SSE2, AltiVec) AND can output the
correct ASM syntax for use in gcc and MSVC.
