Here's another trend...  Symantec/Veritas Netbackup only supports
64-bit UNIX OS'es as of release 7.0, which came out last Fall.  This
was *my* reason for scrapping 32-bit Redhat.

And now is the time to start thinking about migrating into 64. I know that Zimbra's open-source offering doesn't have a clean way of doing this so we're kind of in trouble. That's my anthropological take.
