  _paq.push(["setCookieDomain", "*.mediagoblin.example.com"]);
  _paq.push(["setDomains", ["*.mediagoblin.example.com"]]);
  (function() {
    var u=(("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https" : "http") + "://example.com/piwik/";
    _paq.push(['setTrackerUrl', u+'piwik.php']);
    _paq.push(['setSiteId', 1]);
    var d=document, g=d.createElement('script'), s=d.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; g.type='text/javascript';
    g.defer=true; g.async=true; g.src=u+'piwik.js'; s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s);
