[Mono-dev] 3.0.6 Windows installer - missing dcms.bat, and why only 32bits

While trying to use xbuild on Windows I noticed that dmcs.bat seems to be missing from the 3.0.6 /bin directory
   Microsoft.CSharp.targets: error : Error executing tool 'C:\PROGRA~1\MONO-3~1.6\bin\dmcs.bat' [...]  Native error= The system cannot find the file specified.

I think it is present in the latest 2.10.x stable installer.
Not difficult to work around of course, but I don't think this was mentioned on mailing lists yet.

Second question on the Windows installer: is there an intent to distribute 64 bits out of the box in the near future? I am working on a package that should ideally run embedded Mono from 32 or 64 bit processes (namely the R statistical software). While I know this is doable, a Mono installer that sets up both architectures on Windows would make it simpler to automate a build against 32 and 64 bits of mono-2.0.dll.

Is there interest/plan from the maintainers of the Windows installer to upgrade to support both architecture? I am mindful that this is probably no small amount of work to set up.
