Just to clarify, is the reason you can't use the micro is because we
build for 32-bit? If so I would imagine (though could be wrong) that
you could install the 32-bit on 64-bit architecture without anything
going wrong (we may need to rebuild CKAN as no-arch but that shouldn't
be too hard).
@James: could you comment on this?
