Don't worry. If you maintain that fastest current contribution,
you will soon be the largest cumulative contributor as well.
Just ask evangelist at apple.com. Meanwhile, those of us that
have been slogging away at this task for months would just as
soon see our names in lights as well. Do more keys than the
rest of us and you'll make the listing.

Besides, an hourly or whatever shorter period update that showed
the blocks checked in during that period would effectively be a
current rate listing. It'll get here.
