The context probably got lost as it's several parent posts up. I wasn't referring to x32 in general being pointless, but to the development of an x32 kernel. I don't see the notion of a kernel that lives in the lower 4GB and uses mostly 32-bit pointers while using the native x64 mode to be particularly useful.
I can maybe see x32 with a 64-bit kernel, which is the only thing the x32 folks ever proposed, being useful.
