I think everyone agrees with this; support for this just isn't there
yet, as a matter of finite resources and priorities.

Our first priority was to get gateways going, so that folks behind
firewalls can help. This seemed a bigger source of potential power
than zillions of individual users.

Our new goal is to get the gateways working smoothly :-)

Seriously, though, we hear ya, and are thinking about the keyspace
checkout issue. (Of course, there are other issues like making
kickbutt clients for non-Intel (SPARC, PPC, Alpha, etc.) processors,
as well...)
