A) We do not use Google Analytics at all - it is not an option (we do use 
B) The GAC modules uses the node_counter table. I need to be able to see the 
number of reads on all nodes with term 18 for the month of September, 2010. Or 
for the second quarter of the year, or last week. Or that were written by 
user/234. The node_counter table simply does not have the granularity to do 
that; it has reads today and total reads forever.

Another idea: in case you're already using Google Analytics, and need a 
cache-proof solution, there's also the Google Analytics API module 
(http://drupal.org/project/google_analytics_api), which allows you to access 
Analytics data remotely. Pro: it's off-loaded from your own server. Contra: it's 
not real-time.

The Google Analytics Counter module 
(http://drupal.org/project/google_analytics_counter) is based on this API and 
might already nearly do what you need.
