Thunderbird and Lightning

I've been enjoying Ubuntu 8.10 in the AMD64 flavour for a while and I'm 
very pleased with the facility to use most of the features of my 
printers, which has been a show stopper with Debian and derivatives in 
the past.

However I've hit a stop when trying to integrate Lightning with 
Thunderbird for mail and calendar. Apparently a 64 bit version of 
Lightning is required and doesn't exist (yet??).

Before I retreat to the i386 Ubuntu build, does anyone know of a 
solution that would allow me to stick with 64 bits?

Thanks for any input.
