Unfortunately, not everyone - or even everyone who would be willing to
provide such feedback, or even actively interested in doing so - is
going to install that.

In my case, I don't install popcon because it pollutes the
tab-completion namespace for 'popd' in a root shell. That interferes
with my workflow to the point that I've reluctantly decided to just not
install popcon - with the unfortunate side effect that my package
preferences don't get counted in this kind of statistics.
