You're right, it seems a bit messy.  Anyway, if you are to make
statistics, it would be better to connect to the database by SQL.

*nod* - I have been thinking of this, and I hope I can find some smart
solution to this.

Then again, you can get it out in seconds easily from the database.  I
don't think statistical tools should go through the CLIs or the API.  It's
just no use.

Seems reasonable - though I can't promise anything.
