We have decided that even though we will make them available on the  
server, we likely will not advertise the 64bit version when we release  
1.0.0. It really is still quite Experimental. The 64bit version is  
more our work in progress towards Snow Leopard, where it can really  
show it's power (no need to reload the half the OS in 64bit mode,  
which VLC 64bit will do on 10.5)
