If we're making requests for wp.com stats it would  make a HUGE
difference to me if it was possible to change a setting to make the
stats available to anyone logged into the admin of the self-hosted
wordpress site. Currently its garbage for any site that wants to make
its dashboard stats available to more than one person without sharing
a wordpress.com account.

This is actually related to the above request in that its the same
basic issue (i think): the stats are currently tied to a logged in
wordpress.com account rather than having the site access the files on
its own.

Obviously Automattic has no responsibility to satisfy our needs, it
would just be nice :)
