Comment (by Otto42):

 Yes, the actual number of plugins is 54858, at present. There are indeed
 many hidden, the actual number is in the 85k range.

 Plugins that have been closed over time, plugins that have been submitted
 but not reviewed, plugins that have simply never been uploaded to the SVN
 after being reviewed, these all throw the numbers out of whack. There are
 plugin results which you will not be shown for a lot of reasons.

 The numbers given by the API are not consistent, nor do they really need
 to be since the API isn't mean to be used to query the whole space of
 plugins, nor to pull all the data about all the plugins down from the
 system. Also, I thought that the paging was limited at 100 pages of
 plugins, actually, not 250, but that seems about right.
