	Ick, you're right, that is cheezy.  mozilla.org doesn't list any
64 bit architectures for port projects, that makes me worry.  Are there
any groups working on one (alpha or other 64 bit arch) that you know of?
	I'd have thought this would have been one of the first projects
addressed once the source got into public hands.
