Nope. Have had pkgstats installed since 2008:

[darose@darsys12 log]$ grep pkgstats pacman.log
[2008-11-07 10:50] installed pkgstats (1.0-2)
[2009-10-29 22:06] upgraded pkgstats (1.0-2 -> 1.0-3)

And (as far as I know) its weekly cron job has been running
successfully. Just ran it again by hand now to make sure:

[root@darsys12 log]# su -s /bin/bash -c '/usr/bin/pkgstats -q' nobody


Anyway, bottom line is: I don't think your assumption that squirrelmail
has no users in Arch is correct.
