In principal this sounds ideal - we have been developing separate versions because we have seen small problems occasionally with 32bit CLib on older machines. Additionally, as the article says, it seems ludicrous to make people change something that 75% of software relies upon.

There's a certain irony that people who don't like upgrading Toolbox or other system modules are happy to install the 32bit Clib despite larger potential risk. Of course, in 98% of cases, there's no problem.
