Should add a comment to that effect then. As far as not recognizing pc
and epsw, I'm rather ambivalent about it. If it's mentioned one way or
the other in the docs that's one thing. Otherwise it can be up to the
implementer. From the bad history of being permissive with mips I'd
suggest being strict.
I will not use abbrev.
