Summary: Option to restrict view counter per namespace
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: General/Unknown
        ReportedBy:$wgHitcounterUpdateFreq is there to
improve the performance by lowering the database load a bit but it has a major
disadvantage: your view counts become wrong and lower than as without using

My thought is that it would be more useful for people to not count views on
less important namespaces instead and only count e.g. MAIN. Sure the main ns
takes most of the views but performance boost should be the same and in the end
you don't ruin your view counters as with $wgHitcounterUpdateFreq.
