[development] xmlrpc usage stats module or page?

Hi Neil and others,

If there were a module showing these stats, people would be reminded of 
this feature and many, many more would turn it on. In other words, by 
providing module or core access to the stats, the feature itself would 
be promoted.

It is in the interest of everyone running a Drupal installation that the 
modules and themes they have (often after a long and painful testing) 
selected for use in production sites are precisely those that will 
develop further. By providing the stats to the xmlrpc they would 
automatically send a signal to the module/theme developers saying "go 
on, we depend on your module".

I am ready to work on a module that would provide these stats - whatever 
skewed they *currently* are. Can somebody please let me know how can I 
connect to the live database, or at least to its regular dumps so that I 
can get the raw data.
