Allow any user to see how often they use any of their pictures

Full description of the idea
Currently, when a paid account reverts to a free account, all but the three most active userpics get put inactive. I'd like to be able to see which mine would be, because I'm curious about that kind of thing. (I have a permanent account, so I don't have to worry about my paid time expiring, but I'm still curious about this.) Ideally, I'd like to get an idea of how often I use each userpic, which would help if I ever reached my limit and needed to delete one in order to add one.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Provides another statistic about your journal with minimal new coding since a similar function already exists
  • If you're thinking of deleting a userpic so you can upload a new one, this would give you a good starting place to decide which one should go
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Code was intended to be used infrequently and might bog down database if run often enough to satisfy user curiousity
  • Current code doesn't take into account userpics used in communties, so answer might be misleading
  • To really be useful, it'd have to provide a ranking for each userpic (to help you decide which to delete), rather than simply deciding the top three, which would involve some reworking of the code
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Call the part of the inactive userpic code that determines frequency of use, and then output the results to a page that shows all of the user's userpics with a frequency by each one
  • Document how exactly the algorithm determines frequency of use and link this information from the results page
