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 This mining stuff is fast-paced - things quickly become outdated.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.

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, Alexander
