Well, hpa and myself are the only ones really maintaining it
in the last two years judging from the changelog. Some others
probably also contributed small changes not worthy of an entry.

It's grown to something of a monster imo. A complete rewrite for
2.5 would likely be the best thing to happen it in the last 5 years

I got the idea a while ago that splitting the various implementations
(Cyrix/K6/etc) out to seperate files would be a good start.
After I ripped it apart for an x86-64 version (not-yet-tested/merged),
I realised it still needs more work.
