I have one. 64 bit Erlang! (and the big machine - memory is cheap)

Seriously, Sun just brought out a cheap Netra server (Netra 20) which takes
up to 8G of RAM. This would make a serious erlang/mnesia node but we are
limited to 4G per beam process and therefore back to fragmented tables and
multiple nodes per machine (I am really desparately trying to avoid using
Oracle here!)

A 64 bit tagging scheme could be seriously fast as well - no need for all
that bit twiddling..
