    The recompiling efficiency - Instruction Set to Instruction Set, is still a garbage. No multithread transcoding, no static bytecode extensions (the program must recompile everything again), no accelerated transcoder (OpenCL or BMI instructions support), indirect - slow transcoding (still disassemble and reassemble again), just make a program that decides via two Cpu backends - what is the fastest way to directly convert the code with bit manipulation. An 80% efficiency must be reached immediately. Until then my opinion will be the same: as with Wine and D3D situation, in Qemu there are Intel-MS agents doing damage.
