     In my misspent days at HP, I developed a "tool" that would
postprocess objdump -d (and other disassemblers) and create Excel
CVS files that showed the instruction dispatch. There were models
for Merced (LOL) and McKinley/Madison; Montecito would be relatively
easy to add.

     I had to leave the code when I "left", so perhaps some brave
soul still at HP (Stephan?) could dig it up and release it, or
make it public domain so that I could. Any interest out there?
