It would be really nice to complement this survey with information gathered
from PyPI. I think the python version of the client is not being recorded
now, right?

I think this could be very useful not only for the Python devs and the
community, but particularly for package maintainers. In this way we could
find out not only the number of times a given package was downloaded, but
also for which python version.

I understand that this information might not be entirely accurate (i.e.
people downloading the file from the browser or from github) or using other
repositories (like the ones provided by anaconda), but still I think it
could be useful. And with pip becoming the standard tool, it might be a
good moment to do it.
