Where it would be particularly useful is if all the core stuff was moved into a separate library with api and then the plugin could be uber-lightweight making api calls. Taking the next step, it could sniff for memcaching, and use that for the api calls if memcached exists.
There's quite a bit of abstraction that could be done to truly make it "open" but loviing the start. :)

It's a pretty good plugin. Although you gotta wonder why it's 5MBs, while WP
is only 3MBs...
In the reporting section, you should put alt texts on the images. Also, I
think you forgot to end a tag or something, because on the Dashboard, the
normal WP Admin footer ends up in 1 of those fieldset's. It's also a little
bulky to go through the stats. It needs to be more lightweight and
organised. It's also a little slow to.
Otherwise, it looks pretty useful. :D
