Blog access statistics


I need some kind of blog access stats (like most visited blogs, etc...) for my LJ site. I can't find anything related to that in the current LJ code. I've read brad's presentation and he mentions that he stores the web access logs in a Mysql table. He also mentions a specialized daemon that had to be developed because of the number of connections the mod_perl logging handler implied.

Is this code available somewhere? Has anyone tackled this problem in a different way?
I am tempted to insert code in some hook that is called each time get_recent_items() is called (haven't checked if there actually is one) and just update a field in the users' cluster regarding the number of accesses but I'm afraid that will ruin LJ's performance...

Sugestions are welcome.
