Couldn't the same be the case for the 32->64 process? It will become more
interesting in the future.

I think that is a fair request. No guarantee that issues popping up
will be fixed (or can with reasonable effort, think database formats),
but having a look as opposed to an automated WONTFIX appears reasonable.

Yes, that's it.

With the current state, I might try, but I would not bother to report
anything; it takes many hours, even days, to prepare and do the trial, but
any report would be ignored... why bother? :-(

If you or someone else is giving it a try can summarize on the Wiki,
that would be nice.

I have been told by several people that they succeeded. But I have no idea
where in the wiki it would be appropiate.

Just to mention that I succeeding upgrading 11.0 32 bits to 11.2 64 bits.
