Reason for 64bit

As a long-time Raspberry Pi fan I jumped on this, mainly because I just wanted to have a bit of a play around.

Once these are delivered , I'm sure people will find many uses for them but I was wondering for what applications the 64-bit part actually is useful given the memory limitations. I write a lot of code but I practically never have to worry about 32-bit / 64 - bit as the libraries I use are available in both. It is onyl useful to me because I find more than 4 GB RAM very useful. 

I didn't find any threats here on the specific uses for the 64bit-ness, so if there are some I missed, please link.
