yeah, I have mentioned possible users above and there are plenty I
haven't identified yet. patches to ebuilds will follow, I promise =)

for example x264 if built with proper flags gives a noticeable boost,
(at least 2x at encoding), totally worth it.

ppc will not have a lot of flags like on arm or x86, maybe a couple
more, but that's it for now.
