Dual clients no longer necessary to achieve maximum core usage.

The newest version of the client doesn't use 4 processes any more, but 4 threads of one process, so there is no longer any gain to multiple clients. You can drop in the newest client right over the old one and go. BTW this is true for both Linux and Windows clients now.

I probably should move this thread to the deprecated area, but I'll wait until the older client expires later this year before I do it for historical reasons.
