From what I have read, it is lack of a maintainer since the current developers are concentrating on other features. The 64-bit support problem is also only on Windows, and one of the dis-incentives is lack a of 64-bit plugins.

Lack of plugins is a benefit in my world! :-)

Seriously, there are other tangible security benefits to 64 bits as well. For example, ASLR is going to have more bits with which to randomize DLL base addresses.
