Hi Hamish,

Q1: This is a very good question. It would be too much to support 2 new 
architectures. I have build environments right now for both 32 and 64 
bit hosts but I do not have a Mac to test. Personally I feel that mac 
users should not receive be some kind of special treatment (only Ubuntu 
offers a dedicated build, other distros don't), so I would prefer to 
have 64bit build without the mac changes.

Q2: I think that it is a good idea not to change the default kernel. So 
far we were holding back the kernel updates to protect the build process...
