I was afraid about this happening. I hinted on progressively
posting the results in my preliminary heads-up message to the
boost moderators list and no-one objected, so I thought I'd give
transparency more weight. Perhaps I'm wrong. If you guys think
that a continuous tally is not a good idea, I'm all ears.
In fact, obviously, it will make my life easier to just do one
