We could kill two birds with one stone in the following way:
When Maxima starts up, it could load the current version number from a Web
page somewhere, and notify the user if there is a newer version. The
request should include the version being run, so we know what versions are
still being run. This is useful functionality.
We could then keep statistics on the version checks, keeping source IP (so
as not to count each user many times) and version number.
