Forum and Thread stats: Message/Discussion instead of Replies/Views?


I'm wondering why the list of forums ("node_forum_level_2" template) uses:
{xen:number $forum.discussion_count}
{xen:number $forum.message_count}

instead of the total number of thread views and replies.

Similar to what the list of threads ("thread_list_item" template) uses:
{xen:number $thread.reply_count}
{xen:number $thread.view_count}

I did a dump of all the forum and thread variables available and I did not see what I am looking for.

Looks correct to me. Forums have thread and post counts. Threads have reply and view counts. They are different counts.
