Similar statistics in pkgsrc land might be useful.

Or this may get you thinking about trying to make things better, one

There's an idea about teaching the compiler to recognize some "bad" code, and while building the bad code to actually replace it with good code[1]. (Or was that good & bad reversed? :-)

Maybe that should be done (while thwacking the software authors, too)
