I thought about this recently. What if we could get the http logs for
http.us.debian.org and data harvest them. This should give us a fair
approximation of the number of people who use a certain package. We could
even parse them by the country/location to see that Polish people prefer XXX
and Romanian's prefer YYY. But on topic, this would help tell us which
packages get the most use.
