I hope you are NOT saying that our huge investment in scripting using Lua
prevents us from releasing a 64 bit version of our application.

I was too fast replying. A 64-bit version of bit32 would have problem
storing its results in a lua_Number, even if lua_Number is double, because
you'll have at most 52+1 bits available. So it'd be bit53 more likely :-)
