OTHO you would lose an interesting info: how downloads evolve in time.
Users interested in that could produce that information themselves, though: they query the download stats once a day, and compute the first derivative.
For instance, knowing that 90% of the downloads of a given package where done by zc.buildout is interesting. IIRC, we cannot know it right now, and I could work on zc.buildout side for that, because it uses the setuptools user agent id
In principle, it would be fine with me to track that, as long as I don't need to preserve the the complete log files.
So would the stats file then be of the form
? (commas in the useragent replaced with semicolons)
