As Russ already pointed out, the build status indicator isnt really of 
much value. However, something that *might* be of some value is if 
people can actually get a perspective on present state. Thats something 
I'm working on and hope to have in place once we get 6 out of the door.

Part of the reason why people think I'm out of sync in my estimates is 
down to the fact that package change  and implications of those packages 
include downwards deps as well. So we can be at 95% done, with 1 package 
change taking us down to 75% and it goes on. I guess people like Dag and 
Hendrik just done understand these sort of things very well.
