... remember too, in signal and image processing applications,  
converting to raw machine integers and plowing ahead is often  
counterproductive.

Rather we need saturating arithmetic to avoid abrupt transitions on  
overflow conditions, or modulo addressing. Neither of these is native  
to SSM, and have to be synthesized. DSP chips on the other hand almost  
always offer these variations implicitly or explicitly.
