I asked this on IRC once. When rc5-56 was finished (47% completed and
returned) they had about 53% handed out. 
This still doesn't say anything about tardyness because a lot of
people have buff-in's. If we all had returned our buff-in's after
completing rc5-56, then we would now. Now the only figure is that
about 6% was handed out.
