I just got my own 64-bit x86 machine, and I'm eager to help out in any
way I can!

Maybe we could use a "steps to 64-bit" page on the Wiki. I can think of
maybe a few things to start?

 * Make GC 64-bit (very hard? this should be broken into many steps?)
 * Fix x86 codegen to avoid 64-bit-invalid instructions (if any)
 * Make x86 codegen do 64-bit mode (not bad?)
 * Fix C codegen to work in 64-bit (hard?)

I've been wanting to test out some machine learning algorithms in MLton,
and it would be nice to have full 64-bit support (our lab at CMU has
64-bit Opteron machines with 16 and 32 GB of RAM for large datasets).
