Doing loop unrolling in a profitable way is a lot harder than it looks,
specially in a JIT scenario, with constrained
execution budget.

I guess that you're underestimating the complexity of either doing
profitable unrolling or auto-vectorization. It took
the GCC people more than 3 years to get into decent shape, for example.

But feel free to prove me wrong and come up with a working prototype that
shows measurable gain.
