I can't imagine why it wouldn't be possible...it should be just as easy to implement sr5sieve for BOINC as it was for sr2sieve, since they're quite similar. And as for PRP, since SR5 does it with the LLR software, all you'd have to do is use the same LLR wrapper that PrimeGrid and Riesel Sieve already use for a handful of prime searches (even if it had to be tweaked slightly, it shouldn't need to be tweaked much).

I've noticed that PrimeGrid seems to have a bit of a knack with helping mersenneforum.org prime search projects go BOINC (it's done so with both TPS and PSP by now)--maybe they'd be interested in doing so for SR5 too? (Hint, hint...)
