IMO tweaking the script to run the 32-bit VM is the best thing to do
right now. It gives more consistency in the plugins (some are still
not available in 64-bit form), and the only real downside is the need
to install 32-bit runtime libraries. I expect that it is easier to
explain to new users that they need to install 32-bit libraries from
their Linux distro than it is to explain way some Squeak capabilities
do not work if they happen to be using a 64-bit OS.
