Extend the game ‘set recent best’ function key to include multi processor multi Foldit instance capability.

A software ‘barrier’ process halts all Foldit recipes in all Fodit instances, and from all scores selects the one with the highest score.

A software ‘fork’ then distributes and set the highest score to the recent best solution in every Foldit instance.

This change will enhance evolver solution scores in computers with multiple processors each running a separate Foldit instance. This change will not enhance prediction hand folding. This change is intended for Foldit recipes that search solution parameter space making use of quality random numbers.
