Indeed, I was only counting the number of records, not the number of
subtags, so that a record like this:
Description: PRIVATE USE
counted as only 1 instead of 260. My bad.
I'm always curious about the math in posts like this, or like Ken's
occasional "How many Unicode characters?" posts, so I'll want to go back
and do it myself anyway. One thing I would note is that the number of
redundant tags makes no difference in the final count.
