There won't be an entire 64-bit distribution.  Because it will only
slow down applications.  Debian (and RedHat) will be adding 64-bit
support in the near future so you can compile apps that need 64-bit as
64-bit apps, but it is a bad idea to compile the entire distribution
as 64-bit.  (Both Solaris and IRIX also use a mixture of 64-bit and
32-bit applications.)
