It's been several months with no followup from Transifex. So, I don't 
think we can expect any assistance from them.

I can propose a DIY/hack solution, using this:

This is an example of what we get out of that API:
curl ... -X GET 
     "reviewed_percentage": "83%",
     "completed": "99%",
     "untranslated_words": 45,
     "last_commiter": "ritchey98",
     "reviewed": 1373,
     "translated_entities": 1648,
     "translated_words": 7603,
     "last_update": "2013-10-02 16:40:06",
     "untranslated_entities": 3

In theory, if we run this command every minute or so, we can:
1. look at the translated_words and translated_entities or reviewed
2. if they have changed (increased), it was because last_commiter did a 

It's ugly, because we need to continually run this to gather the data.

However, this way we can gather statistics on how many strings/words are 
translated by whom.
