what instruction set would an OpenBLAS build support? wouldn't we still
need to select a lowest common denominator instructions set to support?

And SEE2 was introduced with the Pentium 4in 2001 -- that is a very long
time ago!

I think the 1% number came from a survey of firefox downloads -- that may
well not be representative of the numpy-using population.

and depending on HOW it failed, 1% might be OK if we could give a
reasonable error message (which maybe we can't...)
