Such case already happen, we have a bunch of contributors sending us
patches and we treat the PR fairly. As I said earlier, the effort into
adding the full support for a given arch can be non-trivial but if the
PR is good enough, we'll give it an actual look and see if it is indeed
As for our business, be assured we don't run on bSIMD licence only ;)
