Sure it would be possible. Actually with the lower processing power
the class of problems which would be applicable would probably be large
(distributed computing is only worthwhile for processes where data
transfer is significantly less time consuming that the actual
processing). Of course some of us could undoubtedly solve a problem on
a single non-coco faster than all of us combined could do it on a all
of our CoCos.
