As soon as we decide whether we can actually do what we hope, and when
we actually have some code which is not imaginary, definitely I'll
announce it here in the hope of getting a plug. :-)

Believe it or not, one of the critical issues for one of our devs is
Win64 support. I know that's not available at this point. If anyone
has any comments on that, it would be great to know what the plans
are, if any, for this.

By the way, is it generally helpful if I post relevant C or IR
sequences here which do not optimise as one would hope/expect? I think
I have found some, but need to check....

Bignum stuff historically explores interesting corners of compiler
technology :-)
