CodeWarrior 64-bit for Windows Professional x64??

I might be dating myself as a CodeWarrior Dinosaurus Rex, but I am still using my trusty Metrowerks CodeWarrior 7.0, IDE version, on Windows Professional x64, and it runs great, still creates flawless 32-bit executeables that vastly outperform the Micro$oftRipoff compilers, and I absolutely love it!

I have written a high-performance chess engine using CodeWarrior. It has been the reignin World Champion since 2004 in a game known as Gothic Chess, which is chess on a wider board with 2 new pieces, making the game infinitely more interesting. See www.GothicChess.com for more information.

Anyway... As Gothic Chess has 80 squares, and I am fetching instructions 32-bits at a time, my program would gain an instant factor of 2 in execution speed if I could compile it as a native 64-bit application.

Are there any plans for a 64-bit version of CodeWarrior for the PC platform?

If the answer is "no", are there any (former or current) CodeWarrior compiler employees who would accept a bride from a wealthy patron to create such a thing?

Please let me know.

Long Live CodeWarrior!
