But why should anyone care? Even Stable now has 1.13.25. In any case, I
would consider versioned build-conflicts a cleaner solution.

The official position is "not possible with 2.0, maybe in 2.1". I found
some patches that are said to bring initial support for 64-bit systems,
but I have not yet managed to find out where they ended up. Will try the
latest SVN some time later this week.
