I don't get why those stats were removed in the first place... and I
don't remember any work being removed when RC5-56 was solved either.
Of course, there was a much shorter gap between when the key was found
and when the project was closed, but IIRC, credit was given for all the
work that was done in those few days (Oct 19, 1997 to Oct 22, 1997?)

None of this affects me personally, since according to the stats, I
haven't submitted an RC5-64 block since August of last year. I'm
wondering what the rationale behind all of this was though.
