| Sure, but my project is something more like 32KB and a dedicated OS...

>Well, the less the better :)))

Okay, I will let you know when I am ready to start!

>As soon as you have a GCC port, it should be able to emulate 32 and
64 bits operations.

Yes, the full suite of GCC tools exists, so it should not be a problem. I am 
still not sure if emulating is enough, because the memory management 
structures must be adapted... On the other hand, the memory management and 
garbage collector might have to be rewritten completely........

I will have to take one step at a time... :-)
