I did suggest it once - https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=32780 - 
it would make things useful and allow for cleaner typecasting with the 
internal __m128 type etc.  It was assigned, but appears to have stalled. 
There might be some portability issues with it, although I think the 
feature already exists in the form of pre-processor directives, but 
those are a little cumbersome sometimes.
