My noob question...Will our current addons work with the 64bit client, or will they all have to be re-written by the developers?!

Won't bother them.Addons run on LUA. This change doesn't affect the LUA scripting. Now, they may make changes that will require newer versions anyway, like any major patch versions, so it might not matter anyway, and you will need an update reguardless.

You answered my question, but to elaborate... I was wondering whether this would require developers to maintain 2 copies of each addon.

There is no concept of 32 bits or 64 bits in Lua - it hides those details from the developers."You answered my question, but to elaborate... I was wondering whether this would require developers to maintain 2 copies of each addon."No. They will not need to do so.
