[RC5] dnet's servers won't give out big blocks

With all the recent conversations about reducing server load and such, I
thought I'd share part of my pproxy's log.  It shows my pproxy trying to
get a 64-statunit block from one of the main servers.  About half the
time, it seems the dnet servers will give out a 64-statunit block.  But
the other half of the time I get tons of dregs.  I've got most of my
clients so that they work on blocks between 8 and 32 statunits.  If my
pproxy can't get a big block, it certainly can't hand a big block out to
those clients.  It's frustrating to have done everything I can to help
efficiency to be undermined this way.

Also - a number of times people have said that below a certain client
version, stats didn't count.  Is that true for rc5-64?

If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them
down?  We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.
