I think what roslof probably meant was whether we planned to create a
64 bit version of V8.
This hasn't been decided yet. Chromium is 32 bit at the moment, and
since all OSs still support 32 bit programs this isn't a pressing
reserve space for an object reference so a 64 bit version of V8 would
use almost twice as much memory for objects and on stacks. Code would
also grow. At the moment there is no register allocation worth
speaking of in the code generator so there would be no immediate
benefit from the extra registers available to 64 bit code.
