Great !!

I already tested and it worked great. Pierre, im just curious how you 
are receiving user responses, i see it sends the output of a pacman -Q, 
but how do you get/use it ?

Thanks a lot, it is really great too =)

What about sending the user at hostname info to it too ? I guess it can 
help to prevent repeated data (pardon if im talking bullshit), just 
thought about that thinking in the same user sending pkgstats everyday 
so we will end the month with at least 30 packages flags.
