I dont think there is any point. Adding it would just clutter up the
code with more ifdefs, and the hwcodecs (atm) are the only ones which
we were worrying about bin size for, and thats all ifdefed out for
them anyway.

Also, leaving it in means its more likely someone will try to optimize
the codec so more targets can run it.
