Gave the issue of impact of this on all analytic programs. The only ones that should be impacted are ones that still process traditional access logs.
If you're using GA, Ominture, Webtrends OnDemand, etc. where you gather data via a java script means no impact. For now at least the Google bot doesn't execute the java script nor do other search bots.
If you still process server log files, yes it will register. So Google please tell us the new bots name.
