It's kinda what I've proposed, but I didn't want to propose writing a
dedicated keyserver or getting too formal. It's a lot of work. Probably
some coordination through forms/email will work better.

I'm not talking about the Bovine RC5-56 cracking effort moving towards
RC5-64, I'm talking about distributed.net coordinating whomever want to
crack that one. If Bovine goes 64 bit the coordinator will assign it a
sector. Probably RC5-64 crackers will trust distributed.net more if it
isn't involved in the cracking.

Now, concerning cracking 64 bits. I think people have become addicted to
cracking and $10k are still waiting...
