    No real controversy here. Simple fact is that for most
    applications and common usage, the 1MHz speed of the 8-bits
    is quite sufficient.
    I do agree that the SuperCPU (for example) is a great boon
    to developers, especially for large projects, because it
    significantly decreases development time. Many developers
    have used cross-compilers (like cc65) to meet their need
    for faster compiling/assembling and because they need more
    sophisticated tools than are available for 8-bits. A faster
    processor in the target system enables it to be a realistic
    platform to host these tools and facilitate development of
    larger projects.
    In the same vein, many more applications for high-speed
    processing exist. I believe Commodore developers have only
    scratched the surface of these possiblities and hope to see
