Details

At the very least, https://github.com/mozilla/build-tools/blob/master/lib/python/release/platforms.py#L37 will need to be changed. There might be other places too.

Something we'll need to watch out for is that this may not happen at the same time for all channels. Eg, it may happen for nightly or beta before release, and it may not happen for ESR until the next ESR cycle. We may need to branch some of these structures to cope.
Actually, nevermind! Since we're only doing this as a one-off transition for now we explicitly do _not_ want to update these alias. We'll make a one-off change for the transition release to 32-bit at 64-bit, but we'll want to continue aliasing WINNT_x86-msvc-x64 -> WINNT_x86-msvc-x86 afterwards, to ensure that users who pave over continue to stay on 32-bit.
