OMSA for x64 on the CD?

This is the way that OMSA is designed. It simplifies development and
test to only put out one version of OMSA at a time. If you really want
64-bit OMSA then talk to your sales reps and support people. If enough
people are asking for it then I'm sure we'll port to 64-bit.

When is this going to be fixed?  It's pretty silly to have to
force-install a bunch of 32-bit RPMs on 64-bit systems just to get OMSA
