Some machines cannot run a 32 bit kernel, so the "easier" idea will not work.

Personally, I think the libc dependencies are unnecessarily tight.  Maybe
someone should test overriding libc's kernel version test, and running a
new libc on woody's kernel instead?

conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince 
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep 
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
