You might be a proponent who always wants to reinvent the wheel and encourages everyone else to do the same, but some of us just like to use the existing wheel thankyouverymuch.

Oh? In this situation it sounds like you don't want to use the existing wheel, and are asking mordrek to change the wheel so you don't have to do simple math... which bodes poorly for the more complex math that would be needed to actually analyze the resulting data.

If the fields are already part of a table that can be exported, an analyzing program can also run over these fields and do something with that input without having to do the same preliminary computation again.

There are an infinite number of potential fields that can be calculated using existing data - not all of them are worth building into the data source itself. If your analyzing program can apply math to the data, it can calculate simply derived fields as well whether those fields are present ahead of time or not. The point is simply that if you want to know those numbers you don't have to wait on mordrek.

I don't oppose the listing of TVPlus ratings, I'm simply saying that the bottleneck is not mordrek's implementing of their calculation and display - anyone can easily calculate the values from the data.

Also, eyeballing already has given me the ability to find 3 or 4 bugs in the mordrek pages in the last weeks alone, so it can't be all that bad

It's "all that bad" when it comes to analysis, yes. There's quite a difference between finding a mistake and applying mathematical inferences to data. That you don't understand that is troubling.
