Comment (by sooskriszta):

 24000 downloads of @ddean's Group Hierarchy plugin
 http://wordpress.org/plugins/bp-group-hierarchy/stats/ which is about 1.6%
 of total BuddyPress downloads. Consider also that BuddyPress has been out
 since April 30, 2009 while the plugin was first released in February 2011
 and the actual proportion of the plugin users is likely to be much higher
 perhaps as high as 3-4%.

 Further, 100% of the active installations of BP Group Hierarchy are of the
 latest version, meaning that these folks are likely using the latest
 version of BuddyPress too. If that's the case, and if we can use downloads
 as a proxy for active installations (and it may not be):
 BP Group Hierarchy 1.3.8 active installs ~ 25,000
 BuddyPress 1.7+ active installs = 1,562,730 x 32.6% ~ 500,000
 BP Group Hierarchy 1.3.8 active installs as a proportion of BuddyPress
 1.7+ active installs = 5%

 This is still a small minority and I'd be the first to admit that for
 quite a while hierarchical group use will remain a minority activity,
 though it will probably be a bigger minority.

 What I do posit is that
 1. it is not an insignificant minority.
 2. the function will help grow the pie.
