Good to be able to discuss this.  I won't repeat the options but will
give my own views as I do use statistic cookies quite a bit.

I would accept either 1 and/or 2 with or without 3.  However, I do not
like option 4 at all as this would simply lead to confusion.  There is
no obvious way to understand the implication of the placement of the
cookie by looking at it.

However, what I would really like to have is the option to include both
lists and subheadings (recursively) in the statistics, i.e. count all
below a given point whether the entries appear as a direct contents list
or lists within subheadings.  I usually end up with lists of lists,
which is fine (and very lispy... ;-)), but when these get long, they are
harder to navigate and hide/open than headings are.

(note: it could be that what I want is ready possible as I'm often
caught out on this list for missing existing functionality.  If so, I
again apologise!)

Thank you!
