I am running backup miners pointed to my own bitcoin clients (one per machine). These miners are running at low priority but they still make some hashing in between new works for the main miners.

The problem is that these miners are so slow that it would take several minutes for them to look through all 4 bil nonce values before they get new work. So at the slight chance (still not zero) that they do generate successful block they would most probably be too late for it to be accepted since at the time they do that - new block would be already generated most probably. The gruesome view of a "0 accepted 1 rejected" would be like winning in the lottery and realizing you've lost the ticket...

So is it possible to add LP support into the official client or should I instead set up the mining pool with LP support on each machine?

Sorry if this is wrong place to ask this.
