Doesn't the use of a proxy server keep the OS that the block was
processed on hidden from the main block servers?  For instance: if I
use OS/2 to process blocks, but fetch/flush via a *nix proxy server,
the main servers think it's processed on that *nix.  If I were the
one to find it, the D.net people would have to get the logs from the
proxy analyzed (or the person maintaining the proxy) in order to
figure out just which OS found the correct key.

[Moderator's note: No, the proxy retains the CPU/OS/VER info ]
