Yes, I know :)  Our amavisd-box at work has 16GiB RAM and 16 cores,
we need at least that much to be able to run 64 instances with the
scratch directories on tmpfs...

x32 would be most likely a _MAJOR_ win for that box.

IME, performance would tank, besides amavisd-new does so much more than what
DSPAM+clam-smtp can do, it is not even funny.  So, we take the memory hit.
The next box for that job at work will have 24GiB of RAM and 32 cores, so
that we can run 128 instances of amavisd-new.
