Thanks a lot for the opinions. Maybe we could check that e.g. all 
dub packages
compiles fine (and unittests succeeds) with LLD to check the 
When we reached that level we can switch the default architecture.

I also like the idea to switch the architecture in DMD itself to 
avoid surprises.
And I really like to have a 64 bit DMD executable. Fortunately it 
is created
by the nightly builds, but having it as release download would be 
really great.

Kind regards
