I would count that as 1 organization, 4 installations and presumably a
number of active lists >= 4

I don't think anyone knows what the world total for these numbers is. My
guess is the number of installations is well into the thousands, quite
possibly in the tens of thousands, and the number of active lists is in
the tens of thousands, but that's only my guess. I don't know how I
would even go about trying to validate that.
