I think this is a bad idea. People will find it invasive of their
privacy, and even with it we'd still have no idea of real usage counts,
considering how many people would opt out --- or never see the prompt
in the first place, because they're using an RPM or .deb installation
that's going to run initdb non-interactively.
We used to have a request to send email in the message that got printed
by 'make install'. How many people responded to that? Darn few that
I can recall.
