the raw data is available, anyone can build anything like that, as  
long as they have resources. I've suggested Henrik to opensource his  
software, but probably it suffers from "not nice enough to show" yet.

I'm considering some kind of API, but have to rethink the process  
(though some people want to have more data - like country tagging -  
instead of less data, hehe ;-), though apparently people who cry for  
stats most are also ones that are bashing my actions and attacking  
'volunteer developers' , so...

On the other hand, 'tons of data' is just 50MB an hour. :-)
