One of the main co-ordinators of the RC5 Bovine effort, Duncan, has also
been thinking along these lines. He has already gotten the domain for this purpose, and hopes to form a network of
distributed computing out of anyone still willing to do this stuff when
the contests are done. If you're serious about doing efforts like these
in the future, I'd suggest you compare notes with him first
