Let's keep in mind that Google's Jabber service also works via Gmail itself, 
such that almost any user logged into Gmail is logged into their Jabber 
service, even if they never downloaded the Google Talk client.

Google also consistently refuse to answer how many users they have. :-)
(But I'm fairly certain it's a lot more than this 4 million who downloaded the 
actual client.)
