Package: boinc-client
Version: 5.4.9-1+rmh
Severity: wishlist

Would be nice if boinc took advantage of SMP in machines that support it.  Given
that the algorithms from projects are already as much parallelised as possible,
this would need to happen at the client level.

It'd just need to fork a new cruncher for as many processors as the system has
(obtainable with sysconf (_SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN)).  I suppose some redessign is
necessary as well.
