Actually, I believe the overall rate is just the rate of the master key
server.  If it goes down for a while, it has to play "catch-up" with the
other proxy servers and that can boost it's rate.  Also, I believe that a
proxy server's rate is the average rate for the entire period that that
proxy server has been up.
