As a user, this kind of things would not increase my trust in the software.
Of course, I have already considered this kind of things in the past
(already to have a rough idea about the number of users myself),
but I decided to refrain from such intrusive policies.

It could be turned off by default. Only people interested in promoting
TeXmacs would turn it on.

Information gathering from application usage is not new, but doing it
in real-time for the purposes of advertising might be.
