Would you like 64-bit Toad to be available?

Since SS-2008 and now SS-2008 R2 has been widely accepted, there should be no further development of Toad-SS on a 32 bit platform. It simply is time to go down this road.
I would imagine that the main reason to not compile the app for "Any CPU" would be reliance on any 3rd party controls that aren't also available for Any CPU. Also features like Output to Excel still be able to work with 32-bit Office?
Well, that would be an important consideration. You'd need the export to Excel to work either way.
Not sure I see a need/rush for 64-bit Toad. Perhaps I am lucky and do not see memory issues with Toad. I do run a 64bit OS with 16GB of RAM.
I'd love to see this - now that most OS installs are 64 bit on machines with more than the 4GB RAM limit for 32 bit, it makes little sense to limit an application's potential in this manner. I'm running with 8GB of ram on my box, but consistently run into memory exceptions in Toad - mostly from large data sets that SSMS seems to breeze through. It's kind of a pain to have to constantly have two environments open just to get around this.
When 95% of the outstanding issue for the 32 Bit Toad-SS are satisified, then let 32 bit go and only develop for the 64 bit... 2 years over due.
