Agreed. What matters most is what the plugins do. Some are very database 
intensive, others rely on third-party sites that might introduce lag 
time in page rendering - etc. So it's possible to only use 1 plugin and 
that plugin might totally drag a site down. Or you could run 100 and the 
site might run really great.
