Thanks!  Here's a version that deals with at least one of your caveats:

(defun ndk/checkbox-list-complete ()
  (save-excursion
    (org-back-to-heading t)
    (when looking-at (concat 
                      "^\\*+[ \t]+" 
                      org-todo-regexp ;; first match group here
                      "[ \t].*\\[" "\\(100%\\)\\|[0-9]+%" 
                      "\\|" "\\([0-9]+\\)" "/" "\\([0-9]+\\)" "\\]")
          (if (or (match-string 2)
                  (and (match-string 3)
                       (equal (match-string 3) (match-string 4))))
              (org-todo 'done)
            (org-todo 'todo)))))
