I'm content with the post-install "Would you like to submit your

The idea is to track how many machines are actively running *BSD.
If all we know is that you installed *BSD last month, then we have
no idea if you're still running it this month.
actually, these numbers won't be accurate. Just take a office
machine running *bsd: periodic won't run if the box is shut down
every evening. i think there is a need for some sophistication.
I'm sure we'll find many good ideas which need to be included in
the stats script, as we get more experience with it. I expect that
Marc will be busy writing updates for many months to come... :-)
