I was wondering if it would be possible to create a future so that you assign to run a
specific project on one core and another one on another core if you have a computer with multiple cores.


This is a function in BOINC that I have missed for many years now.

How ever nowadays when multi core CPUs and multi processor PCs gets only more and more common I think it's even more urgent !

But maybe that is a function you could set on your "MilkyWay@home preferences" page instead ????

Like
On multiprocessors, use at most: 1 processor
, just like on the General Preferences page.

I think this might be something to bring up with the people developing the BOINC client :) I think thats what controls all the scheduling and processor assigning.
