SETI@home is a cooperative effort. if they were to code their client

be wasted effort. (read: waste)

having any software miners active when GPU miners are active is wasted
effort. for integrity sake, bitcoin should disable all software
miners, and explain to users that trying to mine via software is "a
waste of your time and power".
