No, I dont agree - my point really was that in some corner cases, 32bit 
might be just as good to have on servers as 64bit, bit on the whole - as 
a general case, if the option presents itself always go 64bit. You can 
always chose to run 32bit userland apps ( eg. a firefox.x86_64 does not 
make much sense, neither does mutt.x86_64 )
