This is
a prequisite for further experimentation. SmartAssembly isn't a webapp, with google analytics and web logs telling us everything. In order to conduct experiments on SmartAssembly, we need to know how customers are using it once it is installed on their machines, and they need to confirm it's ok for us to collect that data. Our current acceptance rate for usage reporting on SmartAssembly itself is quite low, so we needed to improve this for future experiments. Customers aren't using feature usage reporting and error reporting within their own applications because those options are swamped amongst all the obfuscation options.
