[R] R on 64-bit Windows

In the R for Windows FAQ (2.7.2) we have under 2.2:
"There is no specific version for x64 Windows, but the standard 32-bit
version works well enough."
Does that include the handling of huge data sets? What I have read in
other places indicates that the answer is "No".  If so, will there be
a 64-bit version availble soon? When I websearch for 64-bit MinGW it
seems to exist out there.
