Hey, I'm just the sysadmin.  :-)  I think the output is merged  
usually by perl code, using the BioPerl BLAST parsers.  Stats can be  
dealt with, I understand, in BLAST itself; there's a parameter to  
tell it actually how large the total database is, not just the  
segment it's currently running against.  There are people on this  
list far better qualified than I to give you the details...
