Thanks for the review.

I didn't eyeball the code (there's a lot to check!). I extended tests to
cover all combination of atomic operations/argument types. So at least,
tests should guarantee that the right variant in the ad file is
picked. Then, of course, all variants must be correctly implemented. For
that, I checked a couple times that the right boolean flag was passed.
