Interesting question. I guess we could produce some kind of very fast hash that doesn't really *guarantee* we did a "job" but that *indicates* we did. No matter how we do it, it will affect performance though. But how would the server/mother/master know that such a hash is correct? The only way is to do that exact work yourself and that would defeat the whole idea of it. So we could only use this for sample control. magnum
