Ah well maybe you can merge the two FFI assembler sets for os-x, the
one I created and the one from Ian's unix tree.
I note the one from the unix tree is incorrect, it does not properly
do the boundary alignments so then quicktime FFI calls later fail in
vector processing code on
a memory alignment exception.
This of course is only triggered if you invoke quicktime via FFI on OS-
