What I mean is that we need some discipline, as you mention yourself, it is
unfortunate with this battle tank-style approach.
And I think you do a pretty good job trying to make the rest of the code as 
clean
as possible.
Of course some time it is a little bit annoying you doesn't just accept my 
patches
:-)
Just kidding, I think that's the right way to do things.

I was just hoping that the 64bit code was in the same condition as the rest of 
the
code.
