Well, I'm running a 64bit Linux and I don't want to change into a 32bit 
environment to run squeak. That's all. And it works for me. The memory 
access bug is fixed. And if I get some positive feedback from Philippe 
about the network bug I will  post a CS for VMMaker.

From my point of view it's just a matter of having the choice. And I think 
people should have the choice If we can provide it.
