I've asked that question previously and the answer was a definitive "We
aren't telling."  It seems to be considered a significant enough trade
secret that I wouldn't be at all surprised if they are skipping IDs randomly
to prevent people from doing exactly what you're seeking to do.  Nor would I
be surprised if they refuse to say a word about it now.

Short of figuring out an indirect approach, I don't think you'll be able to
come up with an accurate number.
