Why are 64-bit libraries not included in GnuPG but Gpg4win?

yes, it would be cool to give that as a wish to Thunderbird to develop
a full GnuPG based backend for that purposes for the people that
have that use case and install Gpg4win anyway. (I think adding another
experimental layer in between will not be the best solution, it can introduce 
other sources of differences in behaviour.)

[back to the 64bit libraries question]

Maybe. The current aim is to get Gpg4win 4 out of the door,
so right now the question to change the roles of the small engine installer
and the full installer for Windows (Gpg4win) is taking the backseat to this.
