Dominique has a point here. We don't know if we're submitting duplicate
blocks, and some of us might want to know. As an idea for when d.net gets its
check from RSA and gets better computers: is it possible to optionally send
e-mail to participants on a weekly (or whatever) basis informing them of how
many blocks they submitted and how many and what percentage were duplicates.
