Don't hold your breath expecting Eleuthria to enable merged mining for I0Coin:https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=49417.msg651872#msg651872
"I do not have any plans to support I0C merged mining. The fact that anybody has the slightest interest in I0C at this point is baffling. It's got nothing to offer. The only reason I implemented NMC merged mining was that NMC serves a purpose outside of being traded for BTC (even if most people don't utilize that purpose). Nothing like that can be said of any other altcoin. Piggybacking chains onto BTC when they are technically a competing chain is just stupid."
He can always change his mind though....
I agree with this, I just wanted my i0coin so I could trade it for bitcoin:) I am holding some litecoin because it is mined on CPUs. People wiht out money or highend GPUs will be able to mine their own litecoin to either trade for bitcoin or to buy in litecoin. litecoin, other than namecoin are the only two alt coins worth anything. and I am not saying they are even worth much:)
