It's OK, I had my parade rain-proofed recently. ;) I just wanted to make 
sure your comparisons would be as accurate as possible without any 
unexpected influences.

Whether or not 64-bit outshines (or is outshined by) 32-bit is a 
complicated and, from all I can tell, unsettled issue. The factors that 
influence performance vary from case to case. In any case, the current 
comparisons may very well be something that changes over time, as 
developers design their software with 64-bit in mind.

BTW, I do appreciate the thoroughness with which you tackled this. :) 
The project(s) could always use more skilled hands that help test and 
report on various issues. For example, the LiveCD project could always 
do with some help testing the CD build scripts, reporting on package 
upgrades, etc.
