[Openmcl-devel] Using vecLib framework from OpenMCL?

I'm finding myself longingly looking at some of the capabilities in  
vecLib (a collection of math libraries which are accelerated when  
Altivec/SSE is available) but am thinking that the required setup  
(i.e. allocating and populating the structures then reading the  
results back into Lisp structures) would at best be a wash vs.  
straight Lisp code.  Then I got to thinking that the overhead could  
be greatly minimized by implementing a limited-functionality Lisp  
vector/array type which used FFI-based memory allocation.  Any  
thoughts/experiences re: attempting this or other approaches to using  
vecLib?
