Adam Kennedy has set up Strawberry Perl's default mirror to his mirror
and he has all the statistics information of SP users installations
(unless they manually changed the mirror). So do I for the cpanm
users, which queries my cpanmetadb app to resolve package names ;)

That'd be an interesting hack activity to automatically publish
rankings/graphs sort of thing by analyzing the logs.
