does anybody have any solid numbers/stats about how much people rely on the
standard blue & purple link colors?

i've seen at least 3 discussions on different newsgroups about whether or
not to use standard links. it usually comes down to designers saying "it's
ok to change the colors to match the design, people understand underlined
links" and usability people saying that it's important to keep standard
colors. but no one seems to have any proof of this, and if i make a case to
my boss, i'd like to have facts backing me up.
