We're lazy, perhaps even lazier than yourself. Given that the whole goal
is to essentially ignore the CPU and get our code running on the GPU,
it's hard to get excited about the kind of kernel we're running on the
CPU.

We've got a bunch of test boxes that run 64-bits, unfortunately, the
people doing builds there appear not to care about warnings. That will
get fixed.

I've also got this new G45 box here; perhaps it's time to enter the 21st
century and run it in native 64-bit mode. It's scary though; I've been
writing window systems for 32-bit machines for thirty years now.
