The email address that is supplied when you start the client is reported to
the server and can be used to identify who submitted the solution block.
Furthermore, we will also know the IP address of your machine, which can be
used to help determine the person who submitted the block.

Note that the clients are not capable to exactly identifying the solution
key, but are only able to acknowledge likely candidate keys.  The final
determination will have to be done by our servers when it is received.
