The README in code answers some of my concerns I presented in my post
to loco-contacts [1], but it still probably does not make the
statistics non-broken. The most serious issue out of my hat is the help files I mentioned. They are, AFAIK, still
completely broken in the way that no (new?) translations get in to
Launchpad (like I said, Finnish has almost 100% translated and shipped
in Ubuntu in karmic, but 0% according to Launchpad), and neither
nothing done in Launchpad for OOo help is currently used anywhere, ie.
never exported for use.

I tried to see details about the calculation (which POT files
exactly), but the files referred to from README were non-accessible
(Canonical intra) so I couldn't check for certain that OOo issue for
example or any other stuff (like how big proportion of the strings are
in low-level stuff that ordinary users never see etc.). Anyway, in
principle a good idea to have some pseudo-statistics about the default
installation content translations.
