Ahh, I think I know what you mean now.

What is left for initial support (32-on-64) is

    adding 64bit boot support from grub
    implement 32/64 RPC compatibility for RPCs served by kernel.

This section is talking about a 64-bit GNU Mach kernel, and the Hurd
would be 32-bit.  Basically it is easier to get a 64-bit GNU Mach and a
32-bit Hurd than it is for a 64-bit GNUMach and 64-bit GNU/Hurd.  I
suppose I can make that a bit more explicit.

    For pure 64bit support, we need to

This section is a 64-bit GNU Mach and 64-bit GNU/Hurd.  It's just harder
to do this.  Don't ask me why.  I'm a GNU/Hurd contributer, not a
