I guess we don't know this.  But after completing over 265 seti at home
work units, I can say that the "rhythm" of these work units is
pretty consistent, and any new or different computing would have
to be disguised very well to avoid being obvious.  Also, the home
worker downloads the processing code only once, and only picks up the
data blocks regularly.  Not so easy to spoof it all, imho....
