Is there a way to collect statistics on how popular the "fix" PPA's are? For example, it would be interesting to know how many downloads per month each PPA experiences. Such statistics might suggest just how important "fixing" this is for the community.

(My personal opinion is that the whitelist should officially be added back in. Does it really cause that much more maintanance work? Unfortunatly, many applications and application developers have not and probably will not provide appindicators for their apps. I think this is a fight that Cononical has lost. It has almost been a year since this bug was filed and it is clearly still an issue.)
