On an exclusively 64-bit system you'll know it's 64-bit because LiveCode
won't run. ;)
If it has 32-bit compatibility installed, what should the return value
be for a function that asks whether the OS is 32-bit or 64-bit?
This might be a good thread for the improve list to work out syntax for
a proposed new function.
