It seems to says that ca. twice as many popcon users use Evolution than

Of course we cannot simply assume that the popcon results are an
indication of real usage, since sending popcon results is not enabled by
default. However, your proposed method, if I understood it correctly,
would only count mailing list posters, which is probably even more

Anyway, this is off-topic, posting to -users about potential
improvements has no effect in the first place. Brainstorm might be a
better place: http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/
