[PD] who still needs Pd 32 bits for macOS and why?

"my" external [leapmotion] still only exists for 32b, at some point I'll 
have to hire someone to upgrade the port if I do something with it on 
64b - https://github.com/jmmmp/Pd_Leapmotion_win

But that's surely not considered relevant, probably no one at all 
besides me uses it.
