Any chance of more detailed explanation of these figures?
How is it that dupes increase the total old submission by 4%, yet 
somehow dupes decrease the total new submission? Is that a typo?

Also for the old clients, if non-dupe submission is 39%, and 
nondupe + dupe is 43%, then i assume dupe submission is 4%.
4/43=0.093, that means the percentage of blocks submitted by old 
clients that are dupes=9.3% not 22%.

It would be a sad world if there were never space to ask why? :p
