I agree. I'd like to know how many blocks were reissued to test the new
validation systems. It just doesn't sit right with me that the stats pages
say there is a 1 in 1 chance of wrapping this thing up in the next 24 hours
and at the same time be told we could go past 100% complete!

I'm just a user, but would it not have made more sense to at least take a
guess
at how many blocks would be reissued prior to the project start and then
report
a truer indication of completion?

It seems odd that we have had to complete so much of the keyspace and yet we
still have not found the key... depending on how much work reported is
duplicate
I would think the odds of being at 80% and not hit the key to be fairly low.
