I just want to say one thing (and I can, because it's my birthday), this
effort is not about the stats.  And it's not about the money.  If it is,
and the non-Intel users decide to use clients that cannot report them as
the keyholder, I, for one, will change the email config to
rc5 at distributed.net on all my machines.  We all want to a new stats server
- - where's the money going to come from?  This is a research project.
Research projects need money.  Let's do this thing.
