Question: Hey; I had a question about slow x87 code translation on M1 Macs. Have you given any more thought to writing a dynamic library that handles these incredibly slow instructions for Rosetta2? Wine users have complained about slow 32bit games on Macs since the first M1 chips came out and I imagine such a library would be a big help there too. Did your digging into REAPER performance give you any idea of how large of an undertaking this might be? Thanks, love REAPER.

    I don't think you could do it, you'd have to rewrite rosetta2... apple could do it, if they cared, but they probably don't :/
