Sorry, now the dime has fallen...

	hf = hard float.

Good question. I don't know, but even float operations
run at significant speeups. I have some test application
that did calculate a Mandelbrot set on a Zaurus or on the GTA02
in approx. 250 seconds. On the GTA04 the same code (with
a armv4 cross-compiler! I.e.. no ARM 7 or NEON optimizations)
just needs 2 seconds.

So hard float may not be as important as it was.
