ICC only does C++, doesn't it?  Is the server written in C++?

Some CPU-specific optimizations might be nice... but I'd be willing to
wager they're already there... nobody is running the server on <=i586
hardware.  Overly optimizing software tends to introduce bugs, as well. 
I understand the server, as it stands today, is great among gaming
servers as far as stability is concerned, but compared to traditional
servers, is still fairly unstable... seg faulting every now and then...
optimizations are only going to make that more common.  :-\

Optimizations are great for increasing speed, just be aware they can
also introduce stability issues.
