I intend to, if I ever get around to it, but it's not especially high-priority.

> Why not count the active users?

Because it's more complicated to write the database query.

> 30000 / 135231 = 22.18% vs. 30000 / 12931782 = 0.23%

The first figure is extremely misleading, because you're counting both inactive
and active users who have the preference set, and dividing by only the total
active users.  If 27,000 inactive users have the preference set, it would
really be about 2% of active users, for example.  The latter figure (mine)
almost certainly understates the practical impact of the change, but at least
it's a meaningful comparison.
