Thanks for data.

In comparison, data of m17n-lib (a multilingualization framework which
happen to be developed by m17n/i18n team of my institute.) is here.

The runtime's votes are 537 but votes of m17n-lib-dev (34) is roughly same
popularity to Camomile.

About sourceforge download, 0.7.1 is downloaded 3269 times since 2006-08-20,
and 0.7.2 (which is identical to 0.7.1 except the license) is downloaded
1017 times.

So maybe we can conclude that Camomile is installed several thousand of
machines.  It might impress my boss.
