Probably a lot, but how much of it will be useful or usable is an
entirely different question.

That makes more sense. A well considered survey, asking the right
questions and running for a few weeks, with announcements and reminders
about it in all the channels you mentioned, would be far more useful,
and much easier to process.
There's no need to restrict the announcement to Gentoo channels either,
the likes of Distrowatch and LWN could be used too.
We can sympathize with a child who is afraid of the dark, but the
tragedy of life is that most people are afraid of the light.
