True but that code is tied to mugshot (I asked) and would require users 
to sign up with mugshot while Smolt is in first boot and I think many 
end users would prefer the unobtrusive method. As long as we have it 
optional (ie) I should be able to send the hardware details or the 
packaging stats or both, it should be a useful thing to do.
