Hundreds. Maybe thousands. I have a local checkout of all plugins. I'm
running a search, and I have 291 results and I'm still in "b."

One of my principles of plugin development is to do it in an "odd"
environment. WordPress in a subdirectory, custom content directory.
That forces you to use the proper API functions.
