Details

Support fixed-width SIMD vectors, initially only for 128-bit wide vectors as demonstrated in PNaCl's SIMD and SIMD.js.

SIMD adds new local types (e.g., f32x4) so it has to be part of the core semantics. SIMD operators (e.g., f32x4.add) could be either builtin operators (no different from i32.add) or exports of a builtin SIMD module.
