That's pretty nifty. And it seems to me to be exactly what the Jenkins 
server is for. There are lots of things on the periphery that have not 
received the attention they could have. 64-bit anything seems that way 
to me. And the Jenkins server makes it possible and fun to extend our 
reach. Cool stuff.
