I dunno, it might be nice to have 1 candidate taken all the way, call it a figurehead. 4 months is quite a while, but it's better than the 8 years and 5 months my overclocked i7 would take. A GTX 480 would take less time of course, but still a couple of months most likely.

Even so, it's good to know what the ultimate goal is. 87 seems tantalizingly close as the project has several candidates at 81 bits now. We all know of course that 87 bits requires another 63 times the work to reach, but that's not as much of a carrot as saying, "JUST 6 MORE!"
