One in two hundred Debian users using ZFS on Linux?

Just for fun I had a look at the popcon number of ZFS related packages in Debian, and was quite surprised with what I found. I use ZFS myself at home, but did not really expect many others to do so. But I might be wrong.

According to the popcon results for spl-linux, there are 1019 Debian installations, or 0.53% of the population, with the package installed.
