That'll be nice, but for me, sorry, I pass.  Just wanted to
properly pass on what I did locally at the latest import.

BTW, how about reserving a part of the MIPS args-field opcode
extension character sequence prefix for vendor usage, say "+?".
An alternative would be submitting the two COP2 implementations
we have, but I can imagine that's not of general interest, and
MIPS COP2 implementations being a dime a dozen.
