Maybe is not a good idea:

"While the other security features will be available in the May 1 release,
the protected memory page structure for 32-bit processors--such as Intel x86
chips and the PowerPC chips--won't be ready for another six months, he said.

Is not better to CGL become strong for IA-64/x86-64 architectures?
