Multisite in the wild

How many multisite installs are out there, anyway? In a recent forum post unrelated to multisite but using those numbers for comparison, Jane gave some numbers: We can’t really get very accurate stats, because we only know about *installs* that phone home, not number of users on each one who might need the multisite menus….
