Questions about windows support

1) Is there a chance that dmd will support 64 bit on windows any time 
soon? What are the issues currently with 64 bit support on windows? 
(optlink? backend?)

2) Will dmd support exporting/importing data symbols from dlls? I know 
there is a patch that does the data symbol address patching from the 
runtime but thats a feature that should be supported by the compiler 
directly in my eyes.

3) Am I mistaken or are most of the people here using dmd under linux? 
General bugs or linux only bugs tend to get fixed a lot faster then 
windows only bugs.

Kind Regards
