Also cases with fewer than 1 user, ie "Hmm. R looks like an interesting
package. Maybe I should install it in case I need to do some statistics

"We're a math department, we want all of the mathematical packages"
or even people who install everything.

Obviously that last group will be overrepresented in the Debian popularity
