That's very interesting to me as IBM has been rather forthcoming about
making sure everyone knows that the 32bit bridge was only temporary and
to not rely on it being there in the future. I would hope that would
indicate that they may be willing to release more informaation in the
future regarding this. Of course, what do I know? :p
