I'm doubting this. MS themselves have probably thought about
portability problems - they must be targeting 64 bit at some point,
they must have thought about this. And MS has actively supported
porting .NET to other architectures. It's possible the current
implementation hasn't thought this through, but MS is going to be
interested in a solution, too.

This problem isn't unique to Mono, it'd be a good place to come
together with engineers from other implementation efforts to come up
with a common solution.
