What's a "normal" ratio of web sites to IP addresses...

…in a run-of-the-mill web hoster?
This is really a question specifically for folks with web-site-hosting businesses.
If you had, say, ten million web site customers, each with their own unique domain name, how many IPv4 addresses would you think was a reasonable number to host those on? HTTP name-based virtual-hosting means that you could, hypothetically, pile all ten million into a single IP address. At the other end of the spectrum, you could chew up ten million IPv4 addresses, giving a unique one to each customer. Presumably the actual practice lies somewhere in-between. But what ratio do people in that business think is reasonable? 10:1? 100:1? 1,000:1?
I’m happy to take private replies and summarize/anonymize back to the list, if people prefer.
