AFAIK there hasn't been any discussion on the topic, but is a logical
consequence of switching the arch. from 32 to 64 bit.

The scenario is the following:

- the user installed in 4.0.* an extension based on code written in C++,
  for example the PDF Import extension for Apache OpenOffice. OpenOffice
  and the extension code are both 32 bit on MacOSX
- the user upgrades to 4.1.0, which is now 64 bit
- OpenOffice 64 bit will use the same user profile as the previous 32
  bit version, there is no profile migration; thus this profile contains
  a 32 bit extension that will not work with the new 64 bit OpenOffice.
  The Extensions Manager will display the 32 bit extension as disabled.
