Mark Jaquith wrote a plugin a while back that fetches data from plugins on the WordPress repo, i'd suggest taking a look at this plugin's code to get some ideas about how to query the WordPress Repository API, it's not a huge plugin so you should be able to pluck the necessary info from the main plugin file quite easily, a link to the source is posted below.

Source for main plugin file

Plugin home page

Notably the plugin API can return the download count for a given plugin.

Simply goto http://svn.wp-plugins.org/plugin-slug/ where plugin-slug is the slug of the given plugin.. –  t31os Aug 5 '11 at 12:32
