Thanks again for the input and sorry for punctuating the spam
equilibrium with my barrage of posts! I think with the recent posts,
we are definitely narrowing down a list of high priority targets for
the next round of development. We'd love to see 64-bit ChucK happen,
but don't have a good idea of how soon we can get that done. We will
investigate it in the next few weeks and come up with a plan of attack.
Thanks again for the continued input on this. Earlier posts on 64-
bit can be found here and probably a few other places:
