s/no longer/not yet/

Have a look at the 1.1.x beta.

However, total amount of bytes can be calculated so:  rate * time.

If you know the time (because you set it using --start and --end)
you can take the average and compute the total:

   --end now --start end-86400s
   PRINT:sum:AVERAGE:"total = %6.2lf"

This doesn't take unknown intervals into consideration.
