Sorry for the belated response. Your email somehow ended up in my Spam folder.
My concern with 64bit platform derived from the fact that one software for 32bit might not work properly when recompile and run on 64bit system. There are work to be done to make sure that it work properly on 64bit and that might mean some code will need to be ported.
Thanks for your input.

Python itself has been running on 64-bit systems for quite a long time. There aren't likely to be issues there.
And remember that the 64-bit Windows API is essentially identical to the 32-bit API. They're the same functions, in DLLs with the same names. As long as one has not done anything egregiously stupid, the conversion is mostly just a matter of recompiling with the cross-compiler.
What I'm saying is that there really aren't any compelling reasons for it NOT to be solid.
