Are you really shure about this? A while ago I checked out Apple's objc4 
projekt from anoncvs.opensource.apple.com and build that. I don't remember any 
assembler files there (but I also 
didn't inspect every line of code). currently I can't check (since I am at 
work but I will as soon as I get home).
