Questions about the BatchPCB service

Thanks for this great service.

I'd like to suggest that some additional information on the status page could prove extremely useful, and might not be too difficult to automate.
For each panel, If you could display the "percentage filled", and the "square inches remaining", users might modify their orders to help fill panels.
For instance - if I'm ordering a small board, which doesn't cost much, but find that the panel I'm currently allocated on is still just shy of "filled", I would gladly increase my order to fill it up & push it out for production.

An added benefit is that you would fill panels faster, and increase any revenue you get from running these panels (though I don't expect you actually make much).

Just a thought.

Cheers,
R. Main.
