That gives very little incentive to fetch the correct version. Making the 
optimistic assumption and saying "I'm sorry, but this version won't work" in 
the failure case will definitely get everybody to use the optimal version 
for their machine. And I think that by now the vast majority of our userbase 
uses 64-bit-capable machines.
