[RC5] Stats suggestion

I fetch and flush via e-mail once a week. So if I check my stats they'll be
static for a week (and my rank goes down) and then (when I submit the blocks
of that week) I go up in the ranking. For instance today my stats (as of
7-Nov-2001 at 23:59 UTC) are these:
Rank: 22531 (+150)
Overall Rate: 864.76
Current Rate: 10,349.06
My Block Submission History looks like this:
Since a day has 86400 seconds, the "Current Rate" is computed as
[Number of blocks submited] * 2^28 / 86400
So mine is 3,331 * 2^28 / 86400 = 10,349.06 KKeys/sec
BUT I worked 7 days to obtain those 3,331 blocks so my "Current Rate" should
3,331 * 2^28 / (7 * 86400) = 1,478.44 KKeys/sec
( [Number of blocks submited] * 2^28 ) / ( [days since last flush] * 86400
Sometime ago someone in the dnet team said that, for ranking purpose, some
people kept their blocks to perform a mega-flush.
I think that if the rank for the day was calculated with this "corrected"
"Current Rate", it would deny these folks the pleasure of getting it's day
What do you think?
Is it dificult to do this?
