Ah, ok. Good point. But for everybody else, the numbers are pretty
misleading. I could easily see somebody put off a library because of an
uncommonly low download counter. "Well, it couldn't be that interesting
or more people would have downloaded it."
I'm not sure what we should do. Leave it alone until something better
comes along, I suppose.
