Yeah, I know. It's the 3rd and most incorrect copy of the instruction emitter. I really really want to rip it out, but we do have a unit test for the 'needsexactsize()' stuff, so I figure someone might actually care. Does vmkit use this?

This is particularly bad for X86, because the "exact size" is not exact, and looks completely wrong in a lot of cases. Is anyone using this? Can I rip it out? This stuff should go away with the mc'ization of the JIT in the long term.
