[squeak-dev] 64 bit integer arithmetic

I was wondering if the 64-bit VM (such as the one for Squeak 5.1) will support 64-bit integer arithmetic with primitives for positive integers.  Right now, 64 positive integers support bitwise operations but through code (LargePositiveInteger).  Any plan to move those calculations/operations to primitives to speed things up?  

That would be so wonderful and nice for someone like me wanting to fully use a 64-bit architecture & Squeak/Cog/Pharo/Whatever/VM for a chess engine project! -----------------
