[Koha] Adding recent (current/past year) statistics to the items table

Hi All,

We have had several requests recently for an easy way to access
current/last year's circulation stats for items, without having to create
reports totalling these numbers. The numbers here are used for weeding,
state reporting, etc.

Other systems have fields: 'Year to date circ' and 'last year circ'

We have discussed several possible developments:
 - a new table to track these
 - adding a new field, or altering 'issues' to use JSON and storing
circ/renewal counts by year
 - adding two new fields to the items table and use a cronjob to move
'current year' circ to 'last years circ' at the end of the year.

We wanted to check in with the community to see if this is a request that
others have or have seen, and how they handle these.

Thanks for any info.
