Well - for all we know our biggest single set of users all use IBM
Z-16 mainframes and any day now they will be sending in the cog
updates for that architecture as well.

Can we at least get download counts for the 5.3 and 6.0 beta packages?

That will be skewed since I expect a fair number of linux installs are
done from source but at least it would be some numbers.
