Bug#449015: boinc-client: Please provide an option to enable advanced scheduling at startup

Package: boinc-client
Version: 5.10.8-2
Severity: wishlist

The recent introduction of advanced scheduling is very cool. It'd be 
even cooler if it were possible to trigger it by default at startup with 
eg an option in /etc/default/boinc-client ("SCHEDULE=1" or whatever)

When dealing with a large number of machines, logging in after each 
reboot to manually run /etc/init.d/boinc-client schedule is totally 
impractical :)
