I never spoke about making a statistic.

I said:
"From the last 10828 Postings to this mailing list 4146 had an
User-Agent line."

There is no single line containing a regexp matching anything like
^User-Agent:.*Claws etc.

I know that this is no suitable tool to make a real statistic. It was fun.

Just delete my inital email and be happy.
