Ok.  That is one of the things I'd like to do.

My question was actually another: is it possible to add some
geographical data to the popcon data?

One way could be seeing where the sender IP of the mail is from, then
aggregating the resulting data so that every area has a large number of
results: this to make it still difficult to identify a person given the
country and a package selection,
