Personally no opinion but it could reduce a bit PCSX2 complexity.
* remove 12K line of code (of non portable i386 arch)
* reduce testing/configuration
* a couple of games (maybe 1 actually?) don't work with micro VU
* urban legend say svu is faster but MTVU is much faster anyway

You guys were speaking of this in IRC the other day.
I vote remove. I think there are like 2-3 games that are faster with it, but removing 12k lines of complexity from the code far outweighs that IMO.
If you remove it, don't forget to remove the manual gamefixes that only apply for SVU(of which there is at least 1 that I know of!)

Honestly I don't know which games that rely on superVU. Dunno if there is a list somewhere.
I say remove all of it. Compatibility with one game isn't worth it to keep it in. If someone cares enough then they can track down the bug with older builds that do include sVU.

It's much more than 1 game. Search the contents of the public compatibility list (with the old method, not google) for the term "SuperVU" in the entire post, there's about 20 games which don't run right (or at all) with MicroVU and work much better on SuperVU.
I'd say keep it for now, until the problems are solved on microvu.
Ah handy. Interesting figure. We should really put this list on some Wiki. So yes it seems to soon to drop superVU.
