OK, I'll add my 2 cents.  I think the stats are important.  Has anyone
besides me noticed that the overall keyrate is now <1 Gkey/s?  It seems
to me that the lack of stats has cut our keyrate from 1.X Gk/s before
the v2 clients even came out to <1 Gk/s.  This is a reason for concern.
 People "only [staying] with V1 client software" doesn't cause the
keyrate to fall.  Loss of interest caused by lack of stats does.  We
are seeing the symptoms.  Now, I know Duncan's been sick, and it looks
like maybe they're close, but I think it's really important to have the
stats to generate the interest, and I know I'm not alone.
