I've got a 64-bit capable G5 but have never bothered to fire up 64- 
bit OpenMCL partly because much of what I'm doing right now is Cocoa- 
related (which isn't currently 64-bit) and partly because I'm  
skeptical that I'd see any benefit without data sets that require it.

I think 32-bit Intel would be of wider general interest right now as  
64-bit would only run on a subset of shipped Intel systems, 32-bit  
would run on all of them.   (Obviously, I'm not referring to the  
subset of apps that need 64-bit today.)  Longer term, 64-bit may be  
the way to go assuming that OpenMCL could realize a performance gain  
that offsets the increased executable size and memory usage.
