day). Also, Indys don't support a large enough memory configuration that 64-bit would be worth it anyhow.

indeed they don't.
do you get access to more registers or more efficient instruction sets
like you do on x86_64?

What you would *really* want on such a machine would be n32 userland. You get full 64-bit instructions, but the binaries aren't huge.

Yeah, that is what n32 is for. You get more registers, but pointers are still 32-bit. You still need a mips64 CHOST to build n32 binaries, however.
