Any solution you find will involve a lot of writing to the database to
track hits or else interfacing with an external service in complicated
ways to compare the stats of the different blogs (i.e. you might be
able to run a cron that checks the Google Analytics api for each of
your blogs and sorts them).

A fun idea might be to use wp-supercache to get stats on which blogs
have the most cached pages. Not sure how feasible that would be but in
theory its sexy :P
