Hi Alex and thanks for starting up the 64bit discussion, we have to make 
a new plan, I agree.
I would prefer for us to start building a new mini upon 64bit base and 
offer to the final users both 32 and 64 bit builds.
We should probably only offer VM in 32 bit since under virtualization it 
would not make sense to have 2 versions.
As for the DVD, as long as it is a product based on mini, without extra 
build cost, I am ok with offering both architectures, since this would 
be a last step after mini gets released.

The only problem I see is our testing capacity :(
