    Thinking about it some more, I'm not convinced they can.

    After all, they need to get new data to perform calculations
    on, and pass the results of previous calculations on to the
    server.

    In order to do that, the user needs to run code that's not
    restricted by seccomp. Taking that into account, what's the
    point ?
