Hi, everybody.

I notice that people often mention the delay in map edits being
applied and made _live_.

With the OSM community growing by the day, this problem can only get
bigger.  Does anyone know whether anyone has consider using a
distributed client [1] such as BOINC [2] to do the _number crunching_?

For those not familiar, it means that anyone's computer can use spare
processing power to do calculations, without disturbing the normal
work of the computer.

Just an idea.
