Manu wrote that back in the days with the idea that it would
help writing portable SIMD code on many architectures:

Working in the 3D visualization business and having held at
least one talk about SIMD it was no coincidence that he was
interested in better vector math support. Inclusion into
Phobos was planned. DMD needs some upgrading of the somewhat
ad hoc SIMD intrinsic implementation though:

Many instructions cannot be expressed outside of inline
assembly which doesn't inline.
