AFAIR the SOAP interface can provide you with such information (refer to the

popcon data is available at popcon.d.o, importance can be extracted from the
Packages files.
And for ITP/RFP bugs an external service could do the trick (like bugzilla's
votes system).

This isn't very clear for me, why do you want to combine them?

That can be done by making use of usertags :)
