I think, it's really good for the community that we have no reliable
statistics on "language popularity" and article popularity. Otherwise
there would be inevitable talks like "let's close this or that wiki,
it's a place visited by a couple of same people" (I've already heard
similar ideas about the wp-s edited by one to few editors).
In the recent environment smaller language wikipedias can feel like
really equal parts of the community -- and that's great. The same
about the larger language wikipedias, when the language users have not
come into the Internet massively yet.

Not at this time. At our traffic level, web server
logs are too large to handle
comfortably without a dedicated infrastructure, and we've been forced to simply
disable them until something easier to handle gets set up.
(If we were an ad-supported site, such statistics would be much much more
important and we'd have put in the time and money for it a lot sooner.)
BTW, if we want to know the popularity of an
specific article (not a
specific wikipedia), is there a tool for that?
Not really, sorry.
