I don't think quotas are larger on 64bit, at least I don't care because
they are already in the terabyte range with 2.3.

Do you say Linux? I don't expect to get better performance with x86_64 as
long as you have <= 4Gb of memory. And if I considered 64bit, then it's
real 64bit, not that 32/64bit mess seen with Linux/x86_64.
Anyway, I'm also interested if someone made real benchmarks to find out.
