Not writting the paper about your libm changes will increase chances your 
changes will be simple lost at some step. Possible scenario: 1) One of 
other *BSD totally rewrite its libm using some outside source, many new 
latest standard conforming functions added. 2) Although it is not so good 
in many aspects as yours, users will demand switching, since knows not at 
all about your goal/efforts/ulps/etc. 3) Someday someone switch from 
obsoleted N-years old etc. libm to be compatible with the rest of *BSD.

BTW, do you optimize Athlon only calculation? What about Intel EM64?
