Has anyone created a 64 bit Squeak VM and image for Intel MacOSXdot5
Leopard? If so where is it? I couldn't find it at

Is the latest mac vm both 32 bit and 64 bit?

How does the mac vm get created? How is that different than creating a 
unix vm or a pc vm?

Is there a 64 bit image created for each published image? If not, why 
not? If not then how about putting a menu option so it's easy to 
generate a 64 bit image (or 32 bit image for that matter) from the 
current image? That would be cool to be able to have it transform in 
both directions... and to be easy for novices without having to think 
about the process... which is really only for us uber technies anyhow.

MacOSX 10.5 is now 64 bits. We need to show off the 64 bit smalltalk to 
the world. Can it be done with one FAT binary or with two apps?
