Yes, but at this time I think we should give just up on this, and use
latest cgminer.  Also, only have it built in GPU-enabled builds of JtR.

This mining stuff is fast-paced - things quickly become outdated.
If the cgminer maintainers chose to let CPU-mining go, so be it.
We're being late.

Right.  Lukas - please help Rafael discuss this with cgminer upstream.

Right.  I think it should be "parallella" branch, and we should ask
upstream's opinion on whether they'd be interested in merging it in.

Thanks,
