It's such a pity I can't test this nice feature on my dua### [at] 125GHz
using the Altivec Multimedia Instruction Set, either under MacOSX or
Yellow Dog Linux, taking advantage of my iSight FireWire camera :(

I'm sure that Persistence Of Vision is not intended to Win users !
Furthermore for little-endian (x86 - x86_64) architectures.

Do you really mind the huge amount of work that will need to be done ?

This configuration is the typical devel system for the upcoming
PlayStation3 multimedia platform, embedding a big-endian CPU (Cell),
that is shipping the 17th of November in the USA and Japan, or at
March 2007 for the rest of the world.
