Yes; this is done by specifying a download_url in the plugin's setup.py; 
the page referenced there must have direct download links that easy_install 
can parse, if we want to support automated installation at some future time.

Raw download counts.  See e.g. the links on this page:


Note the "# downloads" column on the far right.  I understand that this 
statistic is updated daily, not in real time.
