I love this approach as a way of driving low level performance forward!  How do you anticipate this working in practice? 

For example, if someone says “I can shave 1 cycle out of this important thing if I write it in asm” and you know that a suitably capable compiler engineer can achieve the same thing given enough time, how do you plan to push back?
