Noone's ignoring you.

What we need to do is ensure that dynamic ticks is working properly on x86 and
worth including before anything else. If and when we confirm this it makes
sense only then to try and merge code from the other 2 architectures to as
much common code as possible as no doubt we'll be modifying other
architectures we're less familiar with. At that stage we will definitely want
to tread even more cautiously at that stage.
