Can we finally get some usage reporting (downloads from the packages site,
if nothing else) implemented so we know what ports are used
frequently/infrequently. This can help with pruning in the future (if a
package is broken, and no one is using it, perhaps it's time to cull.)

I think this was a former GSoC project that never got carried across the
finish line?
