We kinda have that.  It should be expanded.

GMed is already tracking downloads.  We haven't exposed those values
yet, but it can be.  That was one of the reasons we decided to make
the install links point to our host.  (along with the fact that
outside servers can be unreliable, and as we start to impliment
trustworthyness we don't want a script being marked as trustworthy,
then being updated to have evil code)
