Do I need the BOINC client to crunch if there's already an API for it? Maybe a better question is, do I need to manually "Interface" with the BOINC client? Is there a way to control it through an API?
I know this section is about an API, but I don't know if that API is for communicating with the servers or if it's for communicating with the client.

I think it may be worth it to create a program that ad-hoc-ly stitches gridcoin and boinc together and does all the email confirmations for you as well.

I really want people to be able to download a wallet, create a universal account and then just fill out captchas (for creating other accounts as this app does all the website work for you). That's the goal
