I just answered to make sure if this happen, the package should not register 2 times the same user. Though a note somewhere in the package is nice but I don't think it will be of any help since most users don't read it and it's not related to package IMO. I don't know yet the rules concerning the long description of a debian package but maybe a sentence could be added to recommend users to create an account on counter.li ?
