[erlang-questions] Using the half-word emulator with the erlang-solutions ubuntu package

Is it possible to add a 64bit with half-word enabled and HiPE disabled
package in addition to the 32bit and 64bit packages?

Is there a chance HiPE and half-word will work together in a future release?

Thank you for the packages.
They are extremely helpful.
