Web bugs for statistical data are a legitimate want
but potentially a
horrible privacy violation.
So I asked on wikitech-l, and the obvious answer appears to be to do
it internally. Something like http://stats.grok.se/
only more so.
please pop over to the wikitech-l thread with technical suggestions
and solutions :-)
systems looks like the way to go.
What do people actually want to see from the traffic data? Do they want
referrers, anonymized user trails, or what?
