I don't see any reason for us not to publish it on a wiki page, since
we're going to the trouble of producing it for the Duke researchers
anyway.  Anyone in the community with appropriate infrastructure
access could produce these numbers, after all.

In the future, it may be helpful for us to build these functions into
statistical gathering tools that the Community Architecture team is
developing.  This summer, Ian Weller is working on those tools and I
imagine he'd be interested in the code we use here.
