to know that your opinion is "humble" - here we just need to know what your
[valued] insights are, as third-person-objective constructive input.
also please trim)

ta-daaa, now you're getting it.  and that's an optimisation that would
be performed by hardware that chose to implement micro-coding (which does
*not* mean "like intel does it", it just means "some form of rewriting"
rather than "straight naive 1:1". microwatt does micro-coding into OP_ADD)
