This would probably work for those who fetch blocks from a single computer, but for me (and probably quite a few others) it would almost certainly not work. I have several computers on different locations  and LANs chewing through blocks for me.
I think the slowest of these machines would have quite a handful of blocks if the servers were to hand out three days worth of cracking every time it polls. I do an average of about 13-1500 blocks each day, and the slowest machine is a P133 - having it chew on 4500 blocks in three days would be a slight overkill if you ask me.
