I'm not sure there's much point to adding the percentage, but it
might be nice. For most entries, it's just going to be some very
tiny fraction.

On the issue of speed, I'm not sure how meaningful that is. If I
throw 30 machines at deschall for 10 hours a day, is the speed
based on the #keys checked in 10 hours, or the same number averaged
over 24 hours? The example claims a figure of "keys per second",
and that seems somewhat meaningless in this context.

One thing I would like to see is on the beta stats for "Rankings
by hardware" and "Rankings by OS". Right now it shows the number
of keys and the percentage of keys per {hardware,OS}. I think it
might be interesting to include the number of individual hosts for
