32-bit executables rely on a whole stack of compatibility layers that will eventually disappear or work "less optimally". Even if that shouldn't happen tomorrow, by producing a 64-bit executable we make sure we're future-proof
There should also be a slight performance improvement but nothing to brag about out loud.
