dd enhancements

I've modified I copy of dd to add some new options:


to count blocks received logarithmically.  It counts: 1,2,3,.. up to 10,
then it counts 10,20,30,... up to 100, then 100,200,300 etc.  I've also
added an option --timestamp which output the counts with the current date
and time.  I find it useful in testing and monitoring data transfers.  Is
this of general use that it or something like it should be incorporated in
to the main source?
