Is there any chance of this (or similar tool) being run over
historical database versions, extract an overall percentage for the
whole country and then plot it as a function of time to see the rate
at which this metric in evolving. The reason I ask is that in Andy's
recent blog post [1] he suggests that extrapolating the current rate
means the country will be finished in 13 months. Of course it's
unlikely that we are progressing linearly but I wonder what shape this
evolution does have (maybe this is a physicist thing).
