Add "HTTP Server" to WordPress Statistics Page

Description

WordPress Stats shows us what sorts of systems people are running WordPress on - WordPress Versions, PHP Versions, MySQL Versions.

I think it would be interesting to see what http-servers people are using (Apache, IIS, nginx, GWS, others).


Note: Inspiration for this ticket is this article http://www.wired.com/wiredenterprise/2013/09/nginx/. Seems like nginx runs 15% of the web, and Matt said WordPress runs 20% of the web. What is the overlap between them?

FWIW, WordPress.org doesn't know the Server software, as it's not included in any of the existing API calls.
The existing PHP/MySQL/WordPress versions are based off a slice of the daily update checks which pass those details along, anything extra, like the server software (which isn't needed for updates specifically) would probably be an opt-in anonymous-statistics functionality in a plugin or similar.

I know that the server information is not included in the current API calls. I'm saying we should add the server information to the API.
