I wouldn't mind to see a broader solution and I'd welcome others
contributing to this.  

For myself as x86-64 developer, 32/64 bit is the problem I have now
and this is what I'd like to see solved.  It's also easier to find
consensus if we solve one problem after the other if possible. If you
see problems emulations in the proposal, please tell us.
