64bit array indexes will likely be faster on x86_64 in C code
(this of course needs a test, a codec like h264 seems like the most
important place to try it. If its not faster than we can drop the

Whats faster for array indexes might not be faster for multiplications
also it would totally kill any compiler based SIMD generation as variables
suddenly would be bigger then needed
and whats native on a cpu supporting multiple sizes ...
