I had a feeling something like that would do it.

Me neither, but I'll go ahead and install a box or two w/a pure 64-bit
FC6t1 later today, to remove any doubt. (One or two boxes isn't exactly
a huge sampling, but I presume the worry is that it wouldn't be usable
at all, so if it is on one box, it should be on another).

So what needs to happen to make this pipe dream a reality? I'm guessing
the issue needs to be raised at the next FESCo meeting, discussed,
possibly voted on, so on and so forth...
