The only 'less efficient' thing 64-bit programs have, are larger 
pointers as well as other potenial data items.  Though I'm not sure I'd 
consider this 'less efficient'.
Ok, so we have larger binaries and a bit more ram usage for the 
aforementioned, but isn't that all?  I'd guess to say yes, and if it is, 
then that's not so bad.  In fact, I don't think I'd even call is an
