I understand that arcpy is using the 32bit version of Python in 10.1 (Prerelease).

=== Python 2.7 (r27:82525, Jul  4 2010, 09:01:59) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32.

I have installed ArcGIS Desktop (Prerelease), ArcGIS ArcObjects for .NET (Prerelease) and ArcGIS Runtime (BETA 2 - prelease is not yet available).

Is there any plans to support 64bit Python ? Or is this not possible because arcpy is using ArcObjects for it's functions ? (is it?)
