Hmph ... three of my five buildfarm animals are 32-bit, plus I
have got 32-bit OSes for my Raspberry Pi ;-). Admittedly, none
of those represent hardware someone would put a serious database
on today. But in terms of testing diversity, I think they're
a lot more credible than thirty-one flavors of Linux on x86_64.
