To me, the best thing would be to see that count up-to-date with every
custom agenda view.

See http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2013-09/msg01075.html
for a patch I proposed in that direction.

However, I had some comments of Bernt saying that some edge cases are
not covered (when the block separator is empty). I still have to fix
that, and come back with a fully working solution.

Best regards,
