CI86 is neither very fast nor does it produce very good code. The biggie is
the number of bugs in implementation of large memory model float, double and
struct handling. CI86 (the release we had used a year ago) manages to mess up 
the addressing. CI86 is comfortable to use tho', and is fine (as far as we
found!) for <64K stuff.
