[RC5] OGR motivations/achievements in general

The point I was making rather badly, was that the outdated clients were
wasting dnet's (donated) bandwidth, not their own.  Simpler just to absorb
the blocks.  However I suspect that it's not a major issue either way, OGR
24 had virtually dried up until RC5-64 was completed.  A few thousand blocks
a day will not be significant to the proxy network.  Maybe a few thousand
clients trying to connect every few seconds would, I don't know.

Better to have the users that don't maintain their crap waste bandwidth than
to have the Dnet proxy network waste processor time and storage on projects
that ended 4 years ago. They will probably be getting RC5-64 blocks returned
for 10 years.
