I'm probably an edge case but I'm not totally focussed on x86-64
support right now but am rather more interested in Obj-C 2.0 support
than Intel support. I'll also be supporting/working with PPC
machines (32- and 64-bit) for at least a couple more years. Apple's
customer base is still largely running PPC and will be for a while.

I'll fight the good fight with ADC and make a case for getting you
the requested access. You've probably got better connections with
these folks than I do, but another voice can't hurt.
