I think supporting Thread-local handshakes on all platforms will make future changes easier, because some new features may require it.
At least, I prefer to treat 32 bit like the 64 bit version. So I just implemented it for x86 (32 bit).
I've ran a couple of tests on linux and Windows. Maybe someone else still supports 32 bit and wants to run additional tests?
I haven't done performance comparisons, because it's not so critical for us on 32 bit.
I will also need a sponsor.
