Let's take a look at the numbers:

333   emacsen-common                  3791
738   emacs21-common                  2171
803   a2ps                            2009 
1741  xemacs21-support                 879

Assuming that half of all users use emacs, emacs users use only one version 
and emacs and a2ps installations are not correlated, we have 2171 (emacs21) + 
1004 (a2ps users not using emacs) + 879 (xemacs21) = 4045 installations, 
quite a margin above the seen 3791.
