Note that pingback only collects data from wikis which were set up with
1.28 or a later version of the installer (and opted in) or where the system
administrator manually enabld it; and that it cannot differentiate between
"real" wikis and throwaway installations (e.g. on developer machines). So
the real number can easily be a lot more or a lot less than that.
(WikiApiary tracks about 20,000 MediaWiki wikis, so that's a reasonable
lower estimate.)
