Hi Chris,

Lacking any reason to believe otherwise, I estimate the number of BGP
users at reasonably close to the number of autonomous systems in the
Internet BGP table. Technically that doesn't have to be true... but
given the debugging nuissance associated with private AS numbers and
the trivial ease and cost with which an AS is registered it seems
likely to me.

Regards,
Bill Herrin
