Quarry monitor

I know that some of us have done work with quarries, but I've come up with a simple 'hack' to determine if a quarry is played out or just going through a large cavern system.

When setting up the quarry, bring four blocks that don't occur in normal world-gen.  I use bone bricks, since they are cheap to make.  Put these blocks just inside the fence-line at the four corners of the quarry.  When you check your quarry output, the fourth block will show up right when the last column of mining begins.
I am not a number.  I am a random variable!
