Wolff springs showed up for the little P-64, about 10 minutes to install and reassemble the thing, and the difference is like night and day.
I went with the 18# hammer spring, right in the middle of what Wolff offers (they have 17, 18, and 19#. For reference, the factory spring is 22#.) The double-action pull has gone from 10% of the time I can't even pull it to not being bad at all. Some take-up and no noticeable stacking; it feels like a heavy two-stage now. Single action is very light with some stacking.
Being a semi-auto, the hammer spring does actually help slow the cyclic speed of the gun, so to help balance it back out, I also installed a 22# recoil spring (factory spring is 18#.) This should help slow the slide down a bit and keep it from beating itself up too much.
Now I just need to get more 9x18...
