The CDN itself only offers some basic statistics like Top 50 files
downloaded. To get something like downloads per OS version, we would
need to process the raw logs (available via API for last five days).
If anyone is interested in working on this, we could figure out a way to
extract anonymized logs for processing.

Another thing we might consider would be including the OS version into
the user agent string in our libcurl wrapper in Pextlib1.0. That would
make it easier to filter instead of matching on the requested resource
path while excluding bots and crawlers.
