probably some more things to note:
the double precision stuff is not directly related to amd64: it should 
work as well on powerpc and i386.

while i don't have problems with amd64 and Pd, there are other programs 
that don't fully work: in CM the most noteably is SuperCollider3, where 
i haven't been able to get the language-part running on 64bit the last 
time i tried; i hardly ever use SC3, so that it not a big deal (but 
then: probably i hardly ever use SC3 because it doesn't work on amd64)

and just a generic advice: even though i am happy with the amd64, 
probably somebody else should have their say too. chances are high that 
i only have a very narrow view...
