It has prims for arithmetic operations - so if you're doing vector 
addition with floats, say, it should be quite a bit faster.  It also 
takes less memory if you have large numbers of floats, since floats are 
immediate values within the array.  But apart from noticing that you do 
use arrays of floats, I haven't looked at the Ogg code enough to really 
know if those things would help.
