i started working on separating the mmx stuff from the rest of the 
code. now a c/altivec port looks a bit more feasible.

if you want to have a go, please do!
i am preparing the code so at least the framework will run compile and run 
without mmx, with some modules doing nothing. so if you want to give it a 
try, let me know.

ready to be tested :) i've never gotten to actually write ppc assembly though.
but porting my mmx stuf to altivec seems not that hard. i think all mmx 
instructions have a mirror in altivec (and more). the only thing that would 
change is the vector size, the rest can be solved in the c glue code
