The 99% of software that just does open,read,write will be fine 
regardless of word size.

NFS is the only broken thing I ran into (on CentOS 6 anyways), and then 
only if you export subdirectories in the XFS file system, if you just 
export the root of it, you won't have any issues.    if you are 
exporting subdirectories (something I find Windows admins like to do), 
then you have to specify a locally unique integer fsid on each export.  
I just use fsid=1, fsid=2, ...
