That's not too bad; IIRC the simpad is a 200-ish MHZ SA1100 and thus
might be squeezed to another 10% or so. A trick that got a big boost on
the RISC OS SA110 machines was to use the globals-in-a-big-array plus
sticking the base address of said array in a global register. I have
_no_ idea if the relevant compiler for the simpad can handle that.
