I thought SSE2 was fairly old.  Hrm, wikipedia says it started with the 
pentium 4 in 2001.  So I guess some people
with older/cheaper used systems wouldn't have it.  SSE1 started with the 
pentium 3 in 1999 though, so I'd say 95% of blender users has it.

Only advantage of SSE is support for floating-point types though (eh if 
I remember right); if floating-point isn't needed then there's no point, 
I guess.
