Download counts have (kind of) been re-enabled on PyPI.

The new download counts work as so:

    * At the bottom of a detail page there is rolling tallies for the last
       day, the last week, and the last month[1]
    * The API exposes total download counts per file still.
    * The rolling counts update more or less in real time while the total counts in the API update hourly.
    * We no longer incorporate download counts from mirrors, making the mirroring infrastructure a tree and not a federation.

[1] Only the last day is enabled currently, once more data is available the last week and last month will also be enabled.
