Hi, Stefan,
As a *user*, I like seeing the number of downloads on MELPA as a (very
crude) gauge of how much scrutiny a package has received.  Especially
before I contributed something to MELPA and knew they do actually
review the code of packages before they go on there.

What I'd love to see is some measure of the number of users a package
has in the "list-packages" mode.  Is this feature request just to
calculate the statistics for the developers, or does it include any
changes to package.el to display them to potential users?
