Ah well, I found some time to make a graph for this and also found
this to be a good excuse to prototype R Markdown files:
Enjoy! And please let me know how to make that graph even more
useful! (Keep in mind that this is a prototype and that the version
on Tor Metrics is likely going to provide fewer options to examine the
data; but we should use this prototype to learn which are the most
important things we want to have on Tor Metrics.)

Good idea, added to the list.
