I've been pretty much an intel only person, who has some clue about
applications/RTS implementations being 64-bit clean (and platform
independance ), but always from a somewhat practical view.

Does somebody know a good (preferably internet based) source that
covers the principles and theory of such design in an abstract way
(iow not entirely from a C perspective) ?

The reason I ask this is because I participate in a Pascal compiler
project which until now has been pretty much i386-only, but is now
increasingly gearing towards implementing other platforms. I'm
currently doing some minor till medium /design of parts of the runtime
library, and it would be very nice to combine that redesigning with
making the RTS nearly platform independant, and, more important,
allowing platform independant code to be written.
