As far as I can see,  the download count is not exposed (anymore ?) in
the release_data XMLRPC method, but it shouldn't be hard to add it
back since it's directly accessible in the storage
 (built through a cron that reads the apache stats)

It just requires one extra call to `store.list_files(package_name, version)`

Let's see what Martin says.. :)
