SSL brute/ng

If anyone is putting together a wish list of features for the next 
iteration of the distributed brute would they like to consider some sort 
of mirroring approach for the server (at least on stats or updates/ 
software ) so that some of that traffic could be reduced?  I'm afraid I 
am one of the guilty trying to log on to check on the stats at least once 
and I probably contributed to choking it just by doing that.  If a local 
server could have been updated, it would save bandwidth on the server 
doing real work.

Could a trusted group of segemnt dolers be put together? I like the idea 
of running a benchmark type of program so that I could multiply keys/sec 
times the amount of time I had to donate, and only get a reasonable for 
me number of segments.

I would hope that statistics be gathered on the number of keys tested, 
elapsed time, etc. so that we all got some more or less real world 
insight into key lengths and strengths, effort required to break, that we 
have all heard so many projections about... especially as the doling gets 
more sophisticated and the number of participants/cycle pool increases.
Will there be Hal3?  

Just to ask a really dumb question, how do you know when you get the key?
Is there some plaintext header string you're looking for?  --pjp
