yes it should be possible.
i have tested it with ~130 customers in one big installation with more 
than 400 be_users

the permissions are set, when the users opens the statistics module and 
clicks in the pagetree.

that's no problem, but in the future EXT:piwik will offer a lot more 
configuration options - that's the reason for the suggestion.

The installation of piwik is handled within the extesion.
The extension uses parts of the piwik core for synchronising the 
permissions, that's why there has been done a lot to get this 
automatically and the path's are fixed.

1. Install piwikintegration
2. Setup the TS for at least one site (the siteid is fetched directly 
form the page template setup) config.tx_piwik.piwik_idsite = 
3. Go to Statistics > pick a page > watch the install > now your in piwik

If EXT:piwik is not installed, than you can add the tracking code like 
you want, but i need the setup mentioned above to get the siteid.

There is currently a known problem:
siteid's are only created, when a user visits the be module. This will 
be fixed soon.
