It isn't. Python ran on 64-bit Alpha for nearly a decade now (I guess)
make that "over a decade". the first Python system I built was on tru64, back in 1995 (portions of the the initial prototype was written on a 286 box under MS-DOS, but the bulk was developed on tru64 and deployed on tru64...)
Well, there's 64-bit support and then there's 64-bit support. While all Unix or Unix like OSs follow LP64 model, I believe Win64 follows a P64 model. So it's a whole new ball game.
