Well, for some of us (e.g., those of us at large universities with high
computer-student ratios), the keyrate we can bring in is really determined
by how much energy we're willing/able to put into recruiting.  Getting a
good inter-school rivalry going can do wonders for individual block
counts, and for the effort as a whole.  So while the benefits may not be
there for everybody, keeping a stats page is still a worthwhile
investment, IMHO.
