i386 should be by far the most popular, but amd64, macppc, sparc,
sparc64, sgimips, and alpha should also see a fair number of requests.
i386 also has a live CD and an image with binary third-party packages
(i386pkg.iso.torrent), which probably are also quite popular.

2.0 is the last stable release, so I'd expect this one to be the more
popular branch. 1.6.x is still supported, and while there clearly are a
large number of people who use it in production use, I would expect
downloads for new ISOs to be mainly requests for the new release.
