It would be useful if the types chose their instruction set by policy.

template<typename Policy>
void go(float *f)
typedef vec4<float, Policy> vec;

void (*go_ptr)(float*) = go<x87>;

if(supports_sse) go_ptr = go<sse2>;

It would let us handle our own multiple-instruction-sets-in-one-binary
needs at whatever level we deem best.
