 It would be really interesting to show statistics about the number of
 times a package has been downloaded. That measure can help both:

 * Users: it shows what packages are likely to be more widely-tested and
 popular. It can also help them to chose between packages with similar

 * Developers: it shows how popular his/her packages are.

 It would be specially interesting to take package versions in account
 (overall package download/downloads of an specific version)
