Priority is the key. Or better, priority for who?  With IBM Lotus
Symphony we didn't create a native 64-bit Windows either.  Not a #1
priority for us.  But the Apache OpenOffice community can support a
diverse set of priorities.  See how have BSD, OS/2 and OpenSolaris
ports.  All of these are ignored by the major vendors, and even by
other open source projects.  If a developer really wants to make
64-bit Windows work, they would probably succeed.

Everything is undone until it is attempted.
