Is it ok, if I make new branch for mingw64 support work?

What kind of problems should be checked for?

Microsoft appears to have made transition from WIN32 to WIN64 easy; the size of 'long' remains at 4 bytes and type sizes in Win API appear to remain mostly the same with exception of pointer
types (HANDLE, HWIN, etc) and pointer sized integers.

Some API functions appear to be changed, most notably GetProcessWorkingSetSize which now takes two SIZE_T* arguments, instead of two DWORD*.
