I've set up and run BOINC tasks before.  Unless something has fairly
significantly changed, BOINC is really designed for discrete tasks.
Get some data, do some processing/networking stuff, upload the result.
Tor is designed as an always-running daemon - it never 'completes',
and it doesn't chunk well.  While relay capacity is always welcome,
main forms of participation (Guards, HSDirs, being in stable circuits)
require running for an extended period of time with very good uptime.
