Well, because in order to provide context swapping to C/C++ I'm forced to use assembler.
Because each architecture has its own instruction set, various binary formats and ABIs have to be supported for the different OS's and even worse each assembler tool has its own assembler syntax you can image how many assembler files I've to write in order to support a variation of this stuff.
