If you really wanted to create your own popular-query list, you could 
write a python script which would be called by the python module. A 
rather simple way would be to print query names to a text file. Let a 
cron job pick up the file later and do the number crunching. It might 
use a lot of disk space, but Unbound shouldn't be bogged down. It is 
just a place to start and improve from.
