I can understand the reason for wanting to track this kind of thing but I
personally don't like the idea of theme authors tracking this data. I may
be off base but if I were reviewing a theme with this kind of thing I
wouldn't approve it.

insert a tracking in the back end and this way you will know when the theme
is activated the tracking is fired.
