I recall a presentation from folks from Empress Software
<http://www.empress.com/> back in about '94 or '95 offering this very
feature as part of the "base functionality" of their product.
I'm not sure it's quite fair to assess things as "more or less
preposterous" simply because they prove ludicrously expensive to
develop on a particular platform that happens to be targeted by even
more ludicrous quantities of development dollars...
On the other hand, it seems unlikely that "improved performance" would
be one of the merits of this approach...

Rules of the Evil Overlord #92. "If I ever talk to the hero on the
phone, I will not taunt him. Instead I will say that his dogged
perseverance has given me new insight on the futility of my evil ways
and that if he leaves me alone for a few months of quiet contemplation
I will likely return to the path of righteousness. (Heroes are
incredibly gullible in this regard.) <http://www.eviloverlord.com/>
