Ok, assigning this ticket to d_m to fulfil our action from http://plastic-idolatry.com/angband/mtg/2011-06-11.html

First, there is the issue of telling generate.c whether we are in "stats mode" or "real mode". It was suggested on IRC that this be done using the events system. (I don't know what that actually entails - elly said "just create a new event for it" but there must be some code to act upon the event.)

Second, there is the issue of logging the relevant generation happenings if we are in stats mode. My simple thought was that these would be calls to stats_log_pit() or stats_log_vault() et al., which would live in main-stats.c. So the actual level_data structure doesn't need to exist outside main-stats.c, it's just modified there - we pass in the pit or vault index to log.

The structure is simply level_data[level].pit[pit_type] and level_data[level].vault[vault_type] at the moment. Could easily add u32b cavern to the level_data structure to log how often any given dlev is generated as a cavern level. Ditto for labyrinths, if they don't become a vault type ...
