[RC5] Idea for helping to expand the number of systems running.

I had an idea for how Independent Consultants, VAR's , and others could
help get more people involved in distributed.net. If they could give a
small discount to a client or customer if as part of their work they
permitted distributed.net client software to be installed and configured
on their systems(s). To benefit the people doing the install, one
requirement could be that the installer gets to specify what Team that
persons starts on (probably his own), the client could always change it
later, but many people may never change it.

This does require people to give up a little bit of income, but an
active person could greatly increase the odds of his team getting the
correct key. The amount of the discount would of course be up to the
people giving the discount.

This would be done WITH THE PERMISSION of the person who has the system!

VAR's could also ship systems with distributed.net S/W already
installed, but the documentation had better tell the customer about it
so they know it's available.
