Mac OS X Version Breakdown

It would be way awesome to have Mac OS X statistics broken down by major version (much like how Windows stats are broken down).

I know this didn't use to be possible, but it seems that three of the four major Mac browsers now report this info. E.G., I'm seeing the following user agents in my server's log for my machine:

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.1.5) Gecko/20091102 Firefox/3.5.5

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_2; en-us) AppleWebKit/531.21.8 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0.4 Safari/531.21.10

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_2; en-US) AppleWebKit/532.5 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/4.0.249.27 Safari/532.5

Opera/9.80 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X; U; en) Presto/2.2.15 Version/10.10

I suggest that stats for browsers that don't report Mac OS X version could be classified as "Unknown Mac OS X" version, just like you have for other categories.

While this would be really cool eventually as a site-statistic feature (as I don't know of any other analytics service that does this), a good place to start would be the awesome Global Marketshare Reports, especially if you can re-process the last 6 months of data. It would surely rock to see the adoption rates of Mac OS X 10.6 vs. Windows 7.

Thanks for your time and your great service!
