[LLVMdev] 32-bit indexes

I notice that, even though I'm on 64-bit, many indexes are required by LLVM to 
be 32-bit integers. This won't be too important for the next few years 
except, I think, for the case of indexing large mmapped files which could 
already require more than 32-bits.

Am I right and is this on the todo list? What are 32-bit integers doing in the 
64-bit version of LLVM anyway?
