Just to throw some numbers for amusement:

According to Ubuntu Popularity Contest [1] about 21 people did use
Insight package recently. If this includes only last 30 days (I do not
know, it is not documented) the Holidays did skew the number. About
2443 did install the package, though.

Of course Ubuntu's audience is not programmers. Debian's Popularity
Contest claims 95204 submissions so we cannot tell either.
