Karthik, I definitely think it's an interesting value to work with/report to a user -- the number of retweets a given user has issued. Right now, there's no way to get that info without manually counting them from the user_timeline for a user. user_timeline typically goes back around 3200 tweets (+/- some amount), so for users with less than 3200 tweets you could calculate the total number of retweets pretty easily. Otherwise, you could just provide the # of RTs in the period of time from point 0 to -1 of the entire user_timeline.
