In response to a comment about why we have so much work left to do even
though the person claims we have cycled through the keyspace 4-6 times
already:

If I remember correctly, someone from the DNet staff recently sent an
email that indicated that the FAILURE to return rate is approximately 50%. 

Assuming we have cycled through the keyspace 2 times (I don't think we
have cycled 4-6 times) with a 50% failure (or success rate), we would
still have 25% to check, close enough to the 30% that we are currently
missing.
