what do you think how good the download numbers are

Oh the other hand, you have people like me who often skip new
downloads but use D all the time anyway, and people who get them
through third party package managers, etc.
My gut feeling is that it probably basically balances out, so
more downloads probably means more users, though we couldn't
actually tell how many users by just looking at this.
