Maybe my tool should be expanded to produce more nuanced data? Like how many of those 30% are:

- arity 1,2,3, etc? (Arity 1 maybe should be discarded as being counted unfairly? I don’t think so but some clearly do)
- matches 1 argument, 2,3,4 etc? Matching just one is of less value than matching 5. 

Maybe some other statistics?
