Sound good to me but I am not the one that makes the decision, or
maybe I do since it is my computer  :) but I am not the one that
uploads it to sourceforge and makes it official.

It's been a long time since I installed from a binary. Are all the
current osx version 32bit only, I don't see anything about 32/64 bit.
