Considering that this cracking effort is partly inspired by the need
for US crypto developers to be able to compete with foreign crypto
developers, I would have to agree. We're not just cracking keys
here. We are participating in a in a budding technology that will
eventually (when the bandwith allows) change the way we do computing.
I think it's important to keep this experiment 'uncontaminated' by
keeping it within the Bovine family, to determine the feasablility of
this model of distributed computing.
