Is BOINC suitable to be used for projects without end? While most of the projects have a start and an end, some require constant updating and maintenance.

I had an idea to use BOINC to write some search-engine crawling and indexing (as the core computation); assuming I have access to the network API, this project would never end, since the index needs to be constantly updated.
