--- Comment #7 from H. Peter Anvin <hpa at zytor.com> ---
MASM isn't supported on non-Microsoft platforms, for obvious reasons.
Additionally, I think NASM is more powerful in so many ways.

This is why we have release candidates, to give people a chance to test.

We are an open source project with very limited resources. I and Chang have
been allowed to put in *some* of our work time because of the increasing
importance of a portable and flexible assembler, but we still have massive gaps
on the verification front.

Cyrill is working on the problem, but it is simply a lot of work. This one was
a simple one-character(!) bug...

The assistance you just gave is invaluable for avoiding these kinds of
problems. I am hoping that Cyrill's infrastructure project will let us improve
on this front in the future, and be able to add tests other than micro-tests,
like building jpeg-turbo and x264.
