Google Coop Custom Search Engine Statistics

Last October Google Coops Custom Search Engine started producing a Most Popular List of custom search engines in a variety of categories to provide some metrics on which CSEs were popular.

I've now noticed that those of us with our own Custom Search Engines have access to usage trends and popular queries metrics as well. Clicking the 'statistics' link on your CSE page displays a graph showing queries per day, and a summary of the most popular queries made using your CSE.

This is really useful as it gives us some proper metrics on how often our CSEs are used, and what they're used for. I'd like to see metrics like this for the other Coop property, subscribed links, as well.
Update: It's now been announced on the Google Custom Search blog.
