Well, the goal of multithreading with POA is to overcome network latency.
Almost all of the attacks I implement are online attacks against web apps. POA
doesn't require much CPU, it just requires sending lots of requests, retrieving
an average of 1/8th of a bit of information per request (or thereabouts).
As we add interesting offline attacks, CUDA/OpenCL or something similar would
make a lot of sense though.

It is a young project. This first release and notice was just to generate some
buzz and see who is interested in using it and/or contributing. Feel free to
post an issue to the Google code site if you have any specific questions or just
email me privately. I can set up a mailing list once there's enough chatter.
